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

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.

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.

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.
