Simulation provides a unique and effective means of teaching rapid-fire decision making and triage of acutely ill neurologic patients. Simulation in Acute Neurology, by Drs. Sara E. Hocker and Eelco F. M. Wijdicks, presents a well-rounded approach to the development and execution of a simulation-based educational program in the evaluation and management of acute neurologic emergencies. Complete coverage includes an overview of general principles, detailed descriptions of various simulation scenarios, and advice on running a successful long-term simulation program.

Key Features

  • Provides an overview of the principles of simulation in medicine and examines the many unique opportunities it provides as an educational tool.
  • Presents twelve acute neurologic emergencies and three complex neuroethic quandaries in detail – step by step, decision by decision, error by error.
  • Uses a consistent format for each scenario: explanation of the neuroemergency, a description of the scenario itself, and feedback topics such as errors and pitfalls.
  • Consolidates today’s available information in neurologic educational simulations into one convenient resource.
