Join NCS and Mayo Clinic for an ENLS Course in St. Thomas!
Monday, October 23, 2017

The Neurocritical Care Society and the Mayo Clinic School of Continuous Professional Development are teaming up to host NCS's Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) as a pre-conference event to Mayo Clinic's Convergence Neuroscience 2017 in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, on October 23, 2017.

Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS)

ENLS is an educational program designed to provide users advisory instruction regarding management of the first few hours of a neurological emergency. The content of the course is divided into 14 modules, each addressing a distinct category of neurological injury. The course is appropriate for practitioners and providers from various backgrounds who work in environments of variable medical complexity. The focus of ENLS is centered on a standardized treatment algorithm, checklists to guide early patient care, and a structured format for communication of findings and concerns to other healthcare professionals.

Convergence Neuroscience

Convergence Neuroscience calls for groups within the biomedical, life sciences, physical science, engineering and other fields to come together to solve unmet health needs. This conference aims to bring together various scientists with the aim of discovery of education gaps inherent to one’s own discipline as well as the potential for creative collaboration in shared problem solving. 

Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to discuss complex neurological conditions and challenges, identify emerging innovations and potential converged solutions, recognize convergence concepts, identify opportunities for scientific collaboration, discovery and problem solving, and create a growing network of convergence neuroscience teams within Mayo Clinic and abroad.
