IMPROVING NEUROTRAUMA CARE IN THE NORDIC COUNTRIES

The Scandinavian Neurotrauma Committee (SNC) was founded  in 1998 after an initiative from the Scandinavian Neurosurgical Society. The committee is comprised of dedicated neurosurgeons, neurointensivists, and neuroanesthesiologists from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. The SNC is independent of industry funding and members are supported by their respective institutions.


The SNC has published several guidelines for the management of traumatic brain injury. The book “Management of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury” was first published in 2012, and a second edition in July 2020. Preview the book on Springer’s website.

SNC organised the successful Nordic Neurotrauma Conference in Lund, Sweden, in the autumn of 2017 and 2019. We’re planning to get going again for autumn next year. Please visit the conference website for updates on the program for 2023.

After a long wait, the third Nordic Neurotrauma Conference is currently being planned for November 2023. More updates to follow!
