    Target audience

    This Global Neuro Comprehensive Online Diploma in Neurotrauma Care has been developed for neurosurgeons and other health care providers, including residents, dedicated to the integral management of Neurotrauma, as well as complex and interdisciplinary patient care.”


    The diploma program is a combination of lectures, tutorials and case studies, to increase participants' basic understanding of evidence-based practice in neurotrauma. The video lectures will be delivered weekly and will be available in a repository for remote access during the 21 weeks duration of the program. Web-based discussions will be set up in specific time slots in order to allow students from different time zones to participate in live sessions. Discussions will be available in the repository to be accessed after the real time sessions.  

    The program is organized in 10 modules (each one with 6 lectures, totaling 60 lectures). These will be evaluated with a multiple-choice test with a minimum required score of 70%. At the end of the 10 modules a final exam evaluating the content of the whole program will be performed online. 

    The final grade will be a sum of the module’s exams (50%) and the final exam (50%). The minimum required score to obtain the certification will be 7.0 / 10 (70%)

    By completing this course, participants will be better able to:

    • To demonstrate the magnitude of the spectrum of neurotrauma epidemiology worldwide and how different types of injuries can affect patients in different age groups.
    • To develop the ability to read and understand published research related to cranial and spinal neurotrauma, integrated management and outcomes.
    • Analyze the differences of initial assessment and management of neurotrauma patients in different level of resource availability, interacting with protocols, guidelines, consensus and evidence-based interventions in a wider frame of patient safety first.
    • To develop the appropriate decision-making skills to apply a multi-disciplinary and cross-specialty approach to the prehospital, emergency care, surgical and critical care management of neurotrauma patients.
    • To generate the essential knowledge and critical analysis to define futility of care in complex cases and in neurotrauma care related complications.
