6 Thank you to Stephan Mayer, MD and the Neurocritical Care Society for their support of this program

7 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH Plenary Session: Neurocritcal Care in the Emergency Department

8 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH Neuroemergencies: What Are Emergency Physicians Taught

9 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH Key Questions What do we need to know? (How will it improve patient care?) Are we taught what we need to know? How are we taught this information? What are the educational gaps? What are the next steps?

10 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH What Do We Need to Know? Neurological exam Utilization of advanced neuroimaging Documentation of the patient encounter Awareness of clinical guidelines Treatment of the most important neurological emergencies

11 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH What Do We Need to Know? tPA, ischemic stroke Hemorrhagic stroke Subarachnoid hemorrhage Seizures and status epilepticus CNS infections Traumatic brain injury Neuromuscular disorders Pediatric neurological emergencies

12 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH What Do We Need to Know? Evaluation of –AMS and coma –Headache –Seizures –Syncope –Blunt head trauma –Fever and headache –Hypertensive emergencies in neuro pts

13 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH Are We Taught What We Need? Hard to evaluate How do we assess competency? How do we develop a list of “have to learn items”? We can only evaluate published curricula

14 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH Are We Taught What We Need? Hard to evaluate How do we assess competency? How do we develop a list of “have to learn items”? We can only evaluate published curricula There are none!! Published info only states problem

15 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH How Are We Taught this Info? Stettler, Jauch et al Acad Emer Med 2005 Survey of 126 EM Residency Directors 270 hours per year of didactic lectures 12 hours of annual neuro emerg content 17% of EM programs have neuro rotation 15% have neurosurgery rotation Only one offered both

16 Edward P. Sloan, MD, MPH How Are We Taught this Info? Stettler, Jauch et al Acad Emer Med 2005 Half of the neuro rotations critical care Electives for 33% of programs: –Neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology Conclusions: –Not much takes place outside of ED –Need to enhance didactics –Consider more rotations
