Event Overview
Welcome message:

More than 795,000 strokes occur each year in the US, either new or recurrent, and they cause significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 1 of every 20 deaths is caused by stroke, making it the fifth leading cause of death in this country, after heart attack, cancer, respiratory disease, and injuries.


Stroke is preventable on many levels, both medical and lifestyle. Given the significant morbidity and mortality associated with acute stroke and the growing number of stroke survivors, education aimed at improving the knowledge and competence of practitioners to assess, diagnose, and treat this disorder in a timely manner has the potential to substantially improve outcomes in this large patient population.


Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, neurosurgeons, primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants, speech therapists, physical therapists and occupational therapists.


Learning Objectives

After completing this educational activity, participants will be able to do the following:


Accurately assess and treat patients experiencing mild acute stroke;

Identify the crucial issues associated with expeditious prehospital stroke triage assessment;

Summarize key data from clinical trials assessing treatments for hemorrhagic strokes and discuss their impact on patient care;

List the important components of a stroke rehabilitation program and its impact on overall outcomes after a stroke;

Assess recently published data and therapeutic innovations for stroke and interpret their implications for clinical practice;

Create a program to coordinate the care of stroke patients after discharge to avoid readmissions.
