Online conference - 25th of September 14.00 - 18.00 (ECT)
During this 4-hour Webinar we aim to bring reflection to the current developments in neurosurgery and neuroscience, the ethic side and COVID-19. This includes ethics of innovation in neurosurgery (with a focus on innovation during the pandemic), access to care and task shifting and sharing (TS/S) in neurosurgery during the pandemic. About task shifting and sharing (TS/S) in neurosurgery: not only TS/S during Covid-19 – neurosurgeons taking on responsibilities for which they did not train – but also in different scenarios – other health care providers taking on responsibilities of neurosurgeons during times of scarcity.
The Ethics & Neurosurgery course of this year has been postposed to 23 & 24 September 2021. Enrollment for 2021 will be opened in January 2021 and this course will be published on our website.
