Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the most crucial time - the critical first hours of the patient’s neurological emergency. ENLS covers a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach that outlines a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management. The ENLS program is an excellent resource that provides the pharmacist “need to know” neurocritical care information, and also provides certification for those completing the program. ENLS certification prepares pharmacists to provide up-to-date recommendations, optimizing the treatment of neurocritically ill patients. Completion of this course and online assessment provides two-year ENLS certification.
