Brainbook: Neurosurgery for all
Welcome to Brainbook: the innovative global neurosurgical platform.
We are amidst the recently dubbed ‘4th industrial revolution’ as healthcare and medical education accelerates through a rapid metamorphosis in light of technological advances. Brainbook has taken its place in this era as an innovative educational resource, using social media to demystify neurosurgery and to educate the public, junior doctors, allied healthcare professionals and medical students globally, by discussing real cases at the Royal London Hospital, Bart’s NHS Health Trust. Cases are brought to life using GoPro cameras to film procedures from the operating theatre, allowing Brainbook followers to see intricate anatomy of the brain and the delicate nature of brain surgery.
This unique seminar gives insight into the use of social media and new technology to aid neurosurgical education, and to engage members of the public in this previously inaccessible specialty.
