Global Webinar Series 2022-2023

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

During the last 2 years, hydrocephalus society global webinars series provided an opportunity to continue education and sharing of knowledge, despite the challenges imposed by Covid-19 epidemic and travel restrictions. We have all learned new ways of communication during that period; we continued to use these, even now that that global situation has now significantly improved. Webinars proved to be an effective way of spreading knowledge and sharing experience. The hydrocephalous society, is therefore, launching a new series of webinars in 2022-2022: Cerebrospinal fluid dynamic disturbances in adults.

These will continue the tradition of detailed discussion of various aspects of management of Normal pressure hydrocephalus (Hakim’s disease), but will have substantive of additions of topics covering other cerebrospinal fluid dynamics disorders, in particular idiopathic intracranial hypertension and Chiari malformation, among others. There will be also dedicated sessions for surgical techniques and surgical complications. We trust that these webinars will be of interest to attendance of various backgrounds and level of expertise.

The webinars will be consist of ten 60-minute sessions, once monthly between November 2022 and August 2023. The timing of the webinars varies to allow a rotation between favourable European, Asian, and American time zones. These webinars will be chaired and covered by International experts in the field. The series will end just before the 15th Hydrocephalus society meeting Hamburg, Germany, 2023 August 25-28. We look forward to see you all there.

In line with the hydrocephalus society mission of advancing the art and science of the field of clinical care and research in hydrocephalus and CSF disorders, this series of webinars will be provided free of charge.

We would like to invite you to attend these webinars as we hope it will enrich your experience and knowledge about the increasingly exciting field of Hydrocephalus.

Sincerely,
On behalf of the Hydrocephalus Society
