The primary goal of the ESO- ESMINT-ESNR winter school on acute interdisciplinary stroke treatment is to join European young stroke physicians and young neuroradiologists in order to enhance interdisciplinary management of patients with acute ischaemic stroke. A series of concentrated high quality teaching sessions and courses on acute stroke management will be offered at a low price.
The secondary goal of the winter school is to perform “hands-on” courses for interventional neuroradiologists and special teaching sessions for stroke physicians.
The winter school offers a unique method of teaching. Combining plenum sessions, discussions and technical training, it fosters improvement in treatment of cerebrovascular disease and advance research in this complex field, leading to technical developments.
Due to the currently unpredictable situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic the organizational committee has decided to hold the 8th ESO-ESMINT-ESNR Stroke Winter School 2021 (www.strokewinterschool.com) as an exclusively virtual teaching course.
The daily lecturing and teaching program by national and international experts in all subspecialties of acute stroke treatment will be held in a digital and virtual format. The organisors already established an web-based online teaching platform at the Neurocenter of the University Hospital Inselspital Bern (www.neuronews.ch) and are on the way to build up a new platform for the Stroke Winter School 2021 with several new additional and innovative features.
With this new interactive platform we will not only be able to stream lectures from specialists from all over the world, but will also include live interactive tutorials, live case discussions, virtual stroke workflow simulations and an online library. The platform will offer the participants to discuss hot topics in real time and to stay in contact with the World Top Shots in Stroke Medicine. The sponsoring industry will be represented within the platform and participants and industry will be able to get in contact at any time!
