The Talks from Neurotrauma 2016

Marios Papadopoulos

Spinal Cord Injury - What really matters
We can translate our understanding of intracranial pressure to intraspinal pressures and optimise our managment of acute spinal injury

David Sharp

Concussion is confusing us all
What do we mean by concussion - is this a "mild" brain injury, or something more sinister?

Tom McMillan

Brain Injury in Society
Brain Injury affects more than just the patient and their family - homeless, prisoner and refugee populations all have a much higher incidence of TBI

Simon Kemp

Sports Concussion
American Football has had a swave of litigation relating to concussion and the long term effects of TBI. What is the situation in Rugby and what can be done to minimise it.

Brain Injury in Australia
What can we learn from the other side of the World.

Tony Belli

Pituitary Function Post-TBI
Professor Belli explains this increasingly recognised issue following TBI - when and how to investigate it.

Chris Uff

Time Critical Neurotrauma
Time is brain - what can we do to minimise time and resulting brain injury
