Event description

About this Event

ENLS is Emergency Neurological Life Support, aka the “ACLS for the brain and spinal cord”, and was developed several years ago by an Emergency Room physician and Neurointensivist via the Neurocritical Care Society (NCS). This course is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the critical first hours of a patient’s neurological emergency. ENLS demonstrates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management.

Now held regularly at national and international venues, as well as online. ENLS has become the crucial education tool for providers caring for neurocritically ill patients.

Under the leadership of the University of Massachusetts Medical School ENLS course co-directors, neuroanesthesiologist Dr. Shaheen Shaikh and neurointensivist Dr. Marcey L. Osgood, we have put together a phenomenal and informative educational venue.  At the end of this day long course, each participant has the opportunity to get ENLS-certified (valid for 2 years) and we also offer a re-certification course. 

Please sign up and join us!
