Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


NCS is pleased to announce the continuation of our new Trainee Webinar Series. This live webinar series aims to help prepare all neurocritical care providers - from APPs to pharmacists to physicians - for the transition to independent practice.

Every other month we will invite various guest speakers and panelists to address common issues within critical care practice, along with strategies to manage them.

Our second webinar will focus on team building, including conflict resolution and creating a positive culture within neurocritical care. Attendees will learn how to recognize common barriers and organizational challenges in the healthcare and workplace culture. They will define the framework for a positive culture in healthcare. They will identify specific examples of positive and negative workplace culture, along with effective team building, compliance, and productivity. They will also review the concept of intrapersonal and interpersonal team conflicts, as well as strategies to mitigate these conflicts.
