Program Description

Stoke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of adult disability. Stroke is one of the most common reasons patients are brought to the emergency department. Preventing and managing stroke and post-stroke sequelae requires an interdisciplinary approach. In this activity, a faculty expert reviews strategies to improve treatment and outcomes for patients with acute ischemic stroke by utilizing appropriate evidence-based treatments and protocols.

Intended Audience

Emergency medicine physicians and other healthcare providers who manage stroke patients in the acute setting

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Interpret the latest clinical trial data evaluating endovascular therapy in the management of acute ischemic stroke and how this data applies to current practice
  • Implement evidence-based care consistent with American Heart Association (AHA) and other pertinent guidelines
  • Develop regional systems of care to optimize pre-hospital, between-hospital, and in-hospital workflows to improve patient outcomes
