The Continuum of Stroke Care through a TeleStroke Network

Description

This Virtual Grand Rounds online 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.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this online course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify secondary and tertiary prevention strategies for stroke.
  • Identify strategies for evaluating post-stroke discharge.
  • Identify modifiable, and non-modifiable elements which predispose patients to stroke.
  • Recognize how to treat disease that increases stroke risk.
  • Review the role intra-arterial therapy (IAT) has in treatment for theacute stroke patient.
  • Identify the various types of procedures available for intra-aerterial therapy.
  • Recognize the risk factors and symptoms in diagnosing and managing ischemic stroke in young adults.
  • Identify the appropriate lab testing and to be able to appropriately determine the results in treating and diagnosing a stroke patient.
  • Classify the epidemiology of intracerebral hemorrhage, an important subtype of stroke.
  • Describe the long-term management and therapy of intracerebral hemorrhage.
  • Review racial, social, and cultural factors that affect recruitment and retention in clinical trials.
  • Identify targeted strategies to improve diversity in clinical trials.
  • Recognize the importance of diversity in stroke clinical trials.
  • Illustrate the Importance of Image Interpretation in deciding stroke treatment.
  • Recognize the differences in imaging results at specific time intervals post stroke.
  • Define ischemic stroke and review stroke epidemiology.
  • Review cerebrovascular anatomy, ischemic stroke syndromes and acute management.
  • Revewi the epidemiology and common risk factors for ischemic stroke.
  • Describe the classification of strokes by subtype.
  • Identify the mechanisms of stroke.
