Diseases of and injuries to the brain and nervous system represent a tremendous health problem for society. Stroke, for example, is the leading cause of disability in the United States, and one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Rapid diagnosis and early treatment are critical for improving outcomes. The Center for Neurologic Emergencies (CNE) aims to both generate new therapies and to educate frontline providers in early recognition and treatment.
Cooperation and collaboration with other groups are at the core of the Center's philosophy. We partner with the Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology in the Department of Neurology, the Division of Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology, the Division of Trauma, Emergency Surgery and Surgical Critical Care in the Department of Surgery, and the Department of Neurosurgery. Our partnerships ensure an interdisciplinary approach to our goals of research, education, and quality improvement.
The Center publishes reviews and book chapters. We lecture nationally and internationally on the care of patients with neurologic emergencies. The Center offers educational sessions, lectures and training to fellows, residents, nurses, and midlevel providers. In collaboration with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, we provide an annual continuing medical education course for frontline providers focused on the care of patients with neurologic emergencies. More information regarding the CME course can be found here.
The Center also supports the advanced training and development of physicians interested in neurologic emergencies and stroke through close collaboration with the J. Philip Kistler Stroke Research Center and Department of Neurology. One and two-year fellowships with a potential master's degree in public health offered by the Harvard School of Public Health are available to competitive applicants. Those interested in fellowship opportunities should contact Chun Mei Su at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boston Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) Group
The NETT is a federally-funded consortium of academic medical centers across the United States who work together on specific research projects related to neurologic emergencies. In partnership with Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston Medical Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children's Hospital, Yale-New Haven Hospital, Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and Tufts Medical Center, we created the Boston NETT Group, a local consortium dedicated to coordinating efforts to offer patients the most cutting edge clinical trials in neurologic emergencies.
New England Strategies to Innovate EmeRgENcy Care Clinical Trials Newwork (SIREN) Group
The New England SIREN is a nation-wide, collaborative effort that conducts high-quality, multi-site clinical trials to improve the outcomes for patients with a range of emergency conditions. In collaboration with partners across New England, we will both lead and participate in large scale definitive phase III trials for conditions such as traumatic brain injury, cardiac arrest, and others. The New England SIREN network will lead the next generation of definitive emergency care trials, and we are excited that MGH will be one of the national leaders in this important effort.
