Class Information for Topics in Neuroscience Nursing
This is an interactive Neuroanatomy and Assessment course presented in 3-D. The course will help healthcare professionals improve patient care and also outcomes for patients diagnosed with a neurological injury. The tradition of teaching with a 2-D book limits information exchange. This course uses dynamic 3D software developed from a cadaver. An electronic scalpel provides the learner with the opportunity to visualize normal neuroanatomy in multiple planes. This information is paired with traditional (e.g., powerpoint) presentation and a unique interactive lecture style to help learners apply their bedside experiences to solidify their assessment skills while incorporating concepts central to functional neuroanatomy.
