Simulating Acute Neurology is a textbook on the execution of a simulation-based educational program in the management of acute neurologic emergencies. Simulating Acute Neurology has practical value because it contains detailed descriptions of our simulation scenarios. The foundation of this book is our experience with neurosimulation―and it has been a very good one.
- 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.
