What are the global challenges for optimal Neuro Trauma Treatment?

Lack of epidemiological data, especially in LMIC

Short-term treatment focus


Treatment nihilism about cognitive, behavioural and depressive disorders in acute care

Organizational problems:

Lack of information flow about patient long-term needs
Lack of specialists (e.g. in rehab)

Lack of follow-up visits
Lack of collaboration between medical specialists involved in patient‘s "Chain of Recovery“

What are the objectives of NTSC Vienna?

Primary Goal
Changing the treatment paradigm – from short-term focus to long-term follow-up
Multidisciplinary teams from 6 countries developing a joint understanding for the complex needs of TBI patients at each stage of treatment
Reduce the treatment nihilism about cognitive, behavioral and depressive disorders in acute care
Agree on the most important quality indicators of care and measure them in a new TBI registry
Lack of collaboration between medical specialists involved in patient‘s "Chain of Recovery“ – lack of forming multidisciplinary teams

What is NTSC Vienna?

4 leading healthcare institutions in Vienna have developed a training program which focuses on the patient’s pathway to recovery
Multidisciplinary teamwork and raising awareness for the importance of longterm follow-up are the main objectives of the program
6 country delegations are invited to participate with 3 experienced physicians who normally participate in the treatment chain after Neurotrauma
At the end of the program each country delegation will present a plan on how a multidisciplinary treatment of neurotrauma can be implemented
