NCS in Dubai and Rio de Janeiro
By Michel Torbey, MD, MPH, FNCS, FAHA, FCCM, FANA; Immediate Past President, NCS; Chair, Global Partners Committee
Neurocritical Care Society continues to work
on promoting education with our global
partners. Dr. Katja Wartenberg directed our
second ENLS course in Dubai. The course
was part of the 14th International Pan Arab
Critical Care Medicine Society Meeting.
During the meeting, neurocritical care was
well represented. Faculty included: Gene
Sung, Kiwon Lee, Gretchen Brophy, Michel
Torbey, Susan Yeager, Katja Wartenberg and Yasser Abulhassen.
The meeting was a great success thanks to all the efforts and
support of the Emirates Intensive Care Society and the leadership
of Dr. Hussain Al Rahma.
In May, NCS had its second South America meeting held in
Rio de Janeiro. Dr. Gisele Silva, chair of the meeting, did an
excellent job putting together a collaborative group of national
and international faculty to discuss the latest in neurocritical
care. The meeting was very multidisciplinary with both pharmacy
and nursing involvement. Faculty representing NCS included:
Grechen Brophy, Jose Suarez, Mary Kay Bader and Wade Smith.
