More than a 100 family physicians learned about the latest advances in the management and treatment of stroke and spinal problems at the first edition of the Brains Continuous Medical Education (CME) programme on April 23.…
The event was organised by Brains in affiliation with the Family Physicians Association in Bangalore as part of its comprehensive knowledge sharing agenda, designed to keep its doctors on the cutting edge of neuro and spine care.
At the event, which featured sessions by the Founder and Chief Neurosurgeon of Brains, Dr N K Venkataramana and Senior Consultant and Neuro & Spine surgeon Dr Murali Mohan, an audience of predominantly young doctors heard about the latest advances in the management of stroke, trauma care and treatment of spinal problems.
They learned also about why, when and to where they must refer a patient and the importance of following sound protocols to ensure smooth and safe transfer of patients to referral centres. Dr Murali spoke about the latest trends in spine care and trauma management.
The sessions were followed by vigorous question-answer sessions that dealt with issues like stabilisation of trauma patients, stroke management and the concept of Golden Hour.
