Brain injury as a result of trauma or vascular lesions is a common reason for admission to critical care. Mortality rates are high and disability is common in survivors. Brain injury is complex and challenging for individuals, their families and the health care system. Clinical management has improved over time, but there are still areas of uncertainty.

This Symposium has been organised to bring together an outstanding faculty of international experts to interact synergistically with a local audience to focus on key areas of clinical management and related research to understand present challenges and look to the possibilities of the future; we would encourage all members of the academic community, and the multidisciplinary teams that are involved in the care of patients with acute brain injury, to attend and contribute.

This Symposium will focus on 4 key areas:

1.Clinical examination of the unconscious patient
2. Advanced neuromonitoring including cerebral blood flow
3. Blood Pressure and Targeted Temperature Management
4. Mindfulness workshop and optimising our brain function by a healthy approach to work life balance

International Guest Speakers:

Professor Niklas Nielsen (Helsingborg Hospital, University of Lund, Sweden) and lead author of the TTM for Cardiac Arrest study (New England Journal of Medicine 2013).

Dr Paul Young (Wellington Regional Hospital,New Zealand and the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand) and lead author of the HEAT study (New England Journal of Medicine 2015).

A/Prof Andrew Davies (Frankston Hospital, Victoria) will discuss how to “look after our brains” as we deal with the challenges of our work and life.
