Each of these centers will be required to provide at least 4 hours of education to each team member in their hospitals. KISS wants to support both these new Primary Stroke Centers and all our current and developing Emergent Stroke Ready hospitals.
Over the next 12 months we will provide 16 hours of core stroke education and 4 hours of NIHSS orientation. Our core leadership hospitals (University of Kansas Medical Center, Via-Christi Health and Stormont-Vail Healthcare) will provide speakers and resources to improve our knowledge base and improve the care of our stroke patients.
