The sixth annual Neuro ICU Symposium is our successful two-and-a-half day CME course designed to educate physicians and other healthcare professionals on how to optimally manage patients using a team approach and evidence-based medicine.

This year’s emphasis will be on expanding the horizons of Neurocritical Care, focusing on comprehensive patient care and optimizing critical care delivery. The course is in a new Galleria location this year and has many exciting highlights: the results of the pivotal DAWN Trial, a focused session on Neuroanesthesia, different viewpoints on hot topics, and real patient experiences from the ICU. Popular sessions from previous years including neuroscience nursing Jeopardy, simulation workshops, and cross-fire debates will also return.
