Completion of this tool satisfies Part III requirement for continuous certification.
The ABNS adaptive learning tool consists of updated “core neurological surgery concepts” that are evidence based and supported by literature that has been introduced since initial certification. The intent is to update the learner on general and emergency neurological surgery core principles. The goal is to educate and ensure that every ABNS diplomate has mastered the most recent, high-level, evidence-based literature on emergency neurological surgery core principles so that they are a safer and more effective partner in their hospitals and ACS designated trauma centers. The learning tool was written and tested by ABNS directors with input from experts in all our subspecialties. The format is familiar, easy to use and effective. The web-based learning tool can be mastered 24/7 in the comfort of the learners’ home or office. It can be started, stopped or repeated as desired.
