It discusses both acute and longer-term care and research challenges and highlights opportunities for collaborative action to advance the field. Neurosurgeon Geoffrey T. Manley, MD, PhD, FAANS, a member of the NAS Committee on Accelerating Progress, contributed to the report and participated in a webinar highlighting the report’s findings and recommendations.
