One Brain

One Brain was designed in Bristol by a group of senior trainees and consultant Neuroanaesthetists with an interest in the safe management, stabilisation and transfer of neurosurgical emergencies in the acute, perioperative and postoperative period.

This course is evidence based, peer reviewed and structured around the RCoA and NASGBI curriculum and guidance on emergency management of the neurosurgical patient.

Our mission is to improve the knowledge, skills and performance of all practitioners involved in the management of the neurosurgical patient.

The course is pre-dominantly simulation based with a number of short lectures to help consolidate learning. Simulation is employed as a tool to reinforce the knowledge, skills and attitudes, including human factors, required for safe practice in management of the neurosurgical patient.

This course is part funded by School of Anaesthetics, Severn Postgraduate Medical Education for ST3/4 Trainees.

Please refer to our website ( ) for further information.
