Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide in children and adults under 45 years of age. TBI incidence ranges from 300 to 600 new injured patients per 100 000 people per year. 25-30% of those patients have moderate or severe brain injury. Severe brain injury is associated with very high mortality rate ranging from 21-50%. Moderate brain injury is also accompanied with a significant mortality (about 2.5%). It is evident that traumatic brain injury with all ofits consequences represents a significant public health problem.

A small number of injured patients with TBI die from the primary injury - brain damage that occurs at the time of trauma. The vast majority of patients die later from additional, secondary damage that develops after a certain amount of time has passed. It is therefore of utmost importance to prevent the rapid development of brain damage with early and appropriate treatment initiation in the injured.

Course goals:
To improve the competence of medical professionals who are first to approach and manage patients with TBI through practical work and clinical scenarios.
