ADVANCING CHILDREN’S CARE TOGETHER
The International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) seeks to promote the health of children throughout the world by encouraging the ethical transmission and exchange of neuroscientific information and techniques related to Pediatric Neurosurgery.
Since its foundation, ISPN's mission is to improve the health and welfare of children requiring neurosurgical care throughout the world by scientific research and close international cooperation.
To support this mission we give our time, energy and money to support educational activities. Every year we host a scientific meeting somewhere in the world with 300 to 400 physicians and allied health care workers attending. This is an opportunity for us to share with each other advances in the care of children and to plan ISPN sponsored activities that will further the education of caregivers for children with neurosurgical illnesses.
Our society provides faculty and financial support every year for courses in emerging countries needing education in the treatment of children. The intent of these courses is to provide an overview of the state-of-art in pediatric neurosurgery and thereby inform physicians attending these courses about modern-day management of neurosurgical illnesses in children and the expected outcome.
