Safe Transition Pathway: Results of a Clinical Series || Pathways for Surgical Care: Model for Brain Tumors

The Miami Neuroscience Symposium Online will cover topics related to surgical management, stroke management, neurocritical care, neuro-imaging and neuro-oncology. The expert faculty will engage participants through complex cases and novel treatment strategies. Our goal is to share the most innovative and evidence-based clinical practices available in order to optimize patient outcomes in these areas of neuroscience.

Safe Transition Pathway: Results of a Clinical Series 

Neurosurgical care can be expensive for the hospital, as substantial costs are accrued during the operation and throughout the postoperative stay. This lecture will describe how to implement a “safe transition pathway” in the hospital setting, and the important role of the clinical team. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the safety profile following a postoperative recovery pathway that bypasses an ICU stay for select patients undergoing craniotomies.
  • Recognize the team effort required to successfully implement a new recovery pathway and highlight the potential for cost savings.

Pathways for Surgical Care: Model for Brain Tumors 

This presentation will review proper surgical care for brain tumor patients, in addition to coordination of postoperative care between patients, providers and patient caregivers. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Anticipate the potential length of stay and level of acuity for postoperative brain tumor patients.
  • Appropriately guide and inform patients and families on daily postoperative expectations. 
  • Determine when patients are deemed ready for discharge from the hospital.

Target Audience

Adult and Pediatric Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Stroke Neurologists, Neuroradiologists, Diagnostic Radiologists, Critical Care Physicians, Neurointensivists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Family Physicians, General Internists, Physician Assistants, Critical Care and Neuroscience Nurses, Neurosurgery Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Respiratory Therapists (Personal Growth), Clinical Pharmacists and Rehabilitation and Pain Management Specialists, as well as other specialists interested in the field of neuroscience.
