Course Overview

Workshops focusing on training in burr-hole surgery for head trauma emergencies have been offered over the course of three years by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Each workshop provided the foundation for improved acute head injury management facilitated by two neurosurgeons.

This course complements the workshop and assists future and past participants in the maintenance of their knowledge and skills. The content was based on the information contained in the booklet ‘The Management of Acute Neurotrauma in Rural and Remote Locations’ produced by the Neurosurgical Society of Australasia.
