Other Surgical Specialties Emergencies in the Rural Unit – Neurosurgery
26th May 2021 at 19:00 BST
The Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare have partnered with the Viking Surgeons Association (VSA) to deliver a series of webinars focused on Rural Surgery.
This one-hour webinar aims to update general surgeons working in remote areas on the topics of spinal injuries and intracranial injuries. It will include recognition of injuries, resuscitation, appropriate and timely investigation, stabilisation for transfer (if appropriate & available) and options for operative management. This is for the surgeon at the District General Hospital with a significant transfer time to a neurosurgical unit, as well as surgeons in remote areas with longer transfer times or no transfer options at all.
