Diabetes has become one of the most important risk factors for incidence and recurrence of ischemic strokes. In fact, people with diabetes are 1½ times more likely to have any type of stroke than people without diabetes. Furthermore, diabetes delays post-stroke recovery and adversely affects post-stroke outcomes, resulting in more residual effects after stroke, an increased likelihood of recurrent stroke, and increased post-stroke mortality.

Because diabetes management is so crucial to stroke prevention and recovery, National Stroke Association is inviting our Stroke Center Network and Professional Society members to a special one-hour event, hosted by HomeCEUConnection through the new National Stroke Association University on December 10, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. EST:

This online learning opportunity will help the attendee gain a deeper understanding of the latest breakthrough strategies for blood glucose management as well as stroke prevention and treatment in the diabetic population. Topics include:

  1. Diabetes Overview
    • Types
    • Risks
    • Diagnostic criteria
    • Management goals
    • Complications/ risks
  2. Hypoglycemia-Mimicking Stroke Symptoms
    • Assessment

  3. Glucose Management Status Post Stroke
