Pri-Med partners with BAF to develop, educate & update primary health care providers in brain aneurysm awareness
10 October 2018 -

Medical education company Pri-Med said on Tuesday that it has entered into a new partnership with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation (BAF) to deliver "Update in Diagnosis and Management of Intracranial Aneurysms for Primary Health Care Providers" at Pri-Med Midwest in Rosemont, IL on 10 October 2018.

During the medical session, Sepideh Amin-Hanjani, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago, will address how to recognise signs of an aneurysm rupture, when to make a referral and order appropriate imaging, and best practices for educating the patient about the risk factors for aneurysm formation and rupture.

According to the company, one in 50 people in the US has an unruptured brain aneurysm and 30,000 of them rupture every year. Despite low frequency, brain aneurysms are high in mortality, because the lack of a timely diagnosis often leads to death.

This session will focus on the importance of proper diagnosis and scanning and faculty will discuss treatment options to use in practice to meet the need for early detection of brain aneurysm.

Brain Aneurysm Foundation (BAF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support, advocacy, and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures.
