The Continuum of Stroke Care through a TeleStroke Network
This Virtual Grand Rounds series provides emergency department physicians, hospitalists, neurologists, and nurses with eight one-hour webinars containing information on vascular risk factors, endovascular treatment procedures, the use of imaging in determining neurologic treatments, management of intracerebral hemorrhage in the ED, and post-stroke education and rehabilitation.
Studies suggest that the uneven geographic distribution of neurologists has affected stroke and acute neurology care in rural areas. In rural hospitals, there is a reported 35% decrease in stroke care education and 34% lower instance of using diagnostic imaging to help the diagnosis of acute neurologic conditions. Specific to New England, there are a decreased number of emergency department physicians, hospitalists, and neurologists that are able to provide care for these critical and time-sensitive conditions.
Participate in this series to earn up to 8 CME credits and enhance your knowledge of stroke epidemiology, prevention strategies, risk factors, imaging considerations, lab testing, effective therapies, cultural impacts, and much more. We look forward to having you join our series!
