The ENLS course is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the critical first hours of a patient’s neurological emergency.  ENLS demonstrates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management. 
ENLS is made up of 14 protocols; each protocol was designed and written by neurointensivists and emergency medicine physicians. These protocols are designed to provide the same advice an expert in neurocritical care would provide if you called the physician for a consult. 

Full-day session from 8:00 am to 4:15 pm.
UCSF Course Faculty:  Claude Hemphill, MD, MAS;  Nerissa Ko, MD;  Neel Singhal, MD;  Wade Smith, MD, PhD
