Description: For patients presenting with signs and symptoms of acute stroke, the window for diagnosis and intervention is narrow and the treatment options are increasingly complex. This program is designed to address the challenges in management of acute stroke and to provide attendees with the essential set of skills for rapid clinical decision-making that is based on the latest advances in cerebrovascular disease. Critical milestones in the management timeline of acute stroke and resources necessary to deliver best practices in stroke care will be outlined. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the latest advances in medical management of acute stroke, including the best practices in selecting patients for thrombolytic and antithrombotic agent use; management of fluctuating neurological exam and stroke complications; referral for early endovascular and surgical interventions; and resource utilization (such as TeleStroke and advanced neuroimaging) to guide diagnosis and management options that are known to improve stroke outcomes.
