Pre-Hospital and Acute Stroke Programs

This accredited program examines the newest trials and data, and their impact on the stroke care team in pre-hospital and hospital settings over a series of three webinars.

This program aims to provide a bridge between knowledge and practice with respect to diagnostics and tools available for diagnosing the root cause of cryptogenic strokes.

This program is an educational opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn more about the use of neurothrombectomy devices in acute stroke treatment.

In our stroke clinical update, learn how to manage uncontrollable bleeding attributed to anticoagulant therapy and explore promising new therapies. 

Do you want to learn more about the latest information on cryptogenic stroke? This accredited activity identifies and discusses tools available for diagnosing the root cause of a cryptogenic stroke and the opportunities to use them, specifically cardiac monitoring, for the benefit of individual patient outcomes.

Acute strokes due to large vessel occlusion are among the most serious types of stroke, with a high mortality rate. Endovascular treatment is an effective treatment for large vessel occlusions and can reduce mortality and disability.  

Come learn about the latest evidence on acute interventional treatments and its place in the care of stroke. This accredited activity will discuss recent endovascular stroke trials and results and how to translate research results into evidence-based practice as well as define the patients who could benefit from endovascular treatments.

Acute Stroke: Missed Diagnosis activity discusses best practices on how to increase knowledge and improve provider practice regarding the diagnosis of acute stroke in the emergency room with patients who present with atypical symptoms.

This nonaccredited webinar will discuss how data can drive care. The webinar includes case studies with tips and tools on how performance improvement can make a difference in patient care.

Stroke is the leading cause of long-term severe disability and the fourth cause of death in the U.S.  Roughly 30-40% of first time strokes are cryptogenic, or due to unknown cause. It is necessary to establish the cause of stroke to determine functional prognosis, decrease the risk of future strokes, and select appropriate preventative care. Currently, serious gaps exist between in the clinical knowledge of cryptogenic stroke and how to treat, manage, and prevent the occurrence—leaving patients at risk for disabling strokes or even death.
