Neurology Practice Current Survey - How does EEG impact how you care for patients with a possible first seizure?

The Editorial Team of Neurology Practice Current, along with lead survey author Fábio A. Nascimento (Washington University), ask you to participate in this brief, case-based survey which aims to explore how neurologists use EEG to guide the management of individuals with a possible first seizure. The secondary aim of this worldwide survey is to gather opinions on the role of formal EEG licencing examinations.

All neurologists or neurology trainees who spend at least 20% of their time caring for individuals with neurological conditions are eligible to participate. Preliminary results are available to review immediately after completing the survey; detailed analysis will be presented in a future publication.

CNRC Survey - Canadian Practice Patterns for Initial Placement of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunts

The Canadian Neurosurgery Research Collaborative (CNRC), in partnership with investigators at the University of Alberta, are requesting that you consider assisting our research team in the recruitment of participants in a study titled Practice patterns of Canadian neurosurgeons for initial placement of ventriculoperitoneal shunts – a Delphi study on the benefits and challenges of implementing laparoscopic approaches.

Specifically, we will be distributing surveys to practicing neurosurgeons in Canada to understand the current opinions and practices of laparoscopy in shunt placement. We anticipate that there will be 3-4 surveys each taking 5-10 minutes each to complete that will be sequentially distributed over a period of time. There is no obligation for ongoing participation. Eligibility entails anyone who is currently a practicing neurosurgeon in Canada.
