July 2022 CSNS Liaison Report

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the Winter CSNS EC Meeting in Washington, DC due to a prior commitment, but was able to attend the CSNS Meeting in Philadelphia during both the NERVES Annual Educational Meeting and the AANS Annual Meeting. This was the first in-person plenary meeting since the onset of COVID. There were many topics discussed as resolutions and I will highlight some of the ones that should be of interest to our group.

  • Cost Awareness Amongst Neurosurgeon Faculty and Residents: A Need for Health Care Sustainability Education
  • Case Minimum and Credentialing Requirements
  • Creating Sustainable Reimbursement for the Physician Workforce of the Future (Medicare)
  • Evaluating Medical Error Reporting Practices in Neurological Intensive Care Units (Emergency Resolution pertaining to the criminal conviction of a neurosurgical ICU nurse)

I was also asked to sit on a lunch panel at the CSNS luncheon that was focused on philanthropy, how to pursue it and what areas within a practice that it can help, like bridge research funding, helping backstop certain clinical programs that lack reimbursement but are critical to high functioning centers and teams.
