Description of Fellowship: Introduction
Many critically ill patients suffer primary or secondary neurologic dysfunction. Through residency training, Neuro Critical Care fellowships and continuing medical education, trainees will need to master a body of knowledge concerning the special care of the critically ill patients with neurological disorders and incorporate this information into clinical practice, education and research. To this end, the Uppal Neuro Hospital in association with members of Indian Medical Association Academy of Medical Specialty have developed a core curriculum for critical care and emergency neurology. This curriculum is intended to serve principally as a tool for programs developing fellowships in Neuro Critical Care and Emergency Neurology. It also can serve as a guideline for the integration of the Neuro Critical Care knowledge base and related skills in to the education of medical students, residents, fellows, and other medical and allied health care providers desiring education in this area.
Neuro Critical Care is a special area of neurology that focuses on the neurological disorders that affect critically ill patients. These can be primary neurologic disorders, or secondary to other systemic diseases that can affect the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system or both. It includes understanding the effects of critical illness on the nervous system and the special vulnerabilities of the nervous system of patients in intensive care units and other emergency settings. It requires knowledge of the disorders that frequently occur in these settings as well as the methods of diagnosis, assessment, treatment, management and prevention of further injury. Neuro Critical Care also involves bridges into many medical and allied health specialties, including critical care medicine, emergency medicine, neurosurgery, nursing and social work.
Development of the specialty of Neuro Critical Care recognizes the special health needs of the population of critically ill patients with neurologic dysfunction, the characteristics of the nervous system in critically ill patients and the need for interdisciplinary collaboration in this field.
Goals and Objectives
The primary goal of the core curriculum in Neuro Critical Care is to provide a training program that will prepare neurologists, anesthetists, neurosurgeons, emergency medicine physicians and medical intensivists to competently care for critically ill patients with neurologic disorders. This training must be based on supervised clinical work with increasing responsibility for inpatients. It should include not only the specific diseases of the nervous system of different age groups but also the neurological complications of medical and surgical conditions. Neuro Critical Care is particularly a procedure-oriented specialty and basic training in procedures used in neurocritical care must be included.
In the 1-year program, there is an additional, equally important goal, and it is here that the two programs differ most. In this program the resident is expected to spend 50% of his or her time in research. There will be instruction in basic and/or clinical neuroscience research and the applicant is expected to complete at least one project leading to presentation and, hopefully, publication.
The overall objective for specialty training in Neuro Critical Care is to provide the skills and knowledge necessary to:
Topics in Critical Care and Emergency Neurology
The topics listed below provide an outline of a core curriculum, in Critical Care and Emergency Neurology, for fellowship training. Many of the topics included can be used for educational programs in Neuro Critical Care for internists, anesthesiologist, neurology residents, academic neurologists and neurologists in practice. All educational components of a fellowship program should relate to the program goals listed above.
Mission statement for fellowship is to promote:
Quality Patient Care by identifying and implementing best medical practices for acute neurological disorders that are consistent with current scientific knowledge, and that promote compassionate care and respect for patient-centered values.
Professional Collaboration by providing a forum for communication, collaboration, and exchange of ideas between physicians and allied health- care professionals within different specialties who care for critically-ill neurological patients.
Research by fostering clinical, experimental and outcomes research focused on developing innovative and cost-effective medical and surgical interventions for acute neurological disorders.
Training and Education by developing standards for advanced fellowship training, program accreditation, and physician certification in the subspecialty of neurological intensive care.
Advocacy by making the case to patients, the public, policy makers and other healthcare professionals that complex, life-threatening neurological diseases are best cared for by a multidisciplinary team with special expertise in neuro critical car
The fellow will be using the facilities of the Neurological Intensive Care for his clinical and academic pursuits. The unit has a conference room and access to internet as well as Up-to-date on its computers.
