Join us as we identify and address barriers to smooth transitions of care for acute stroke patients between emergency medical services and hospitals, and during hospital-to-hospital transfers.
Who should attend: Neurologists, ED physicians, nurses, EMS personnel, and other health care professionals who can improve the quality of stroke systems of care.
Prerequisites: Practicing member in a medical, nursing, EMS or other health care field that utilizes clinical, operational, managerial, educational or administrative skills. No minimum experience or educational level.
The goal of this conference is the development of a regional Stroke System of Care. Upon completion of the Regional Stroke Conference participants will be able to:
- Define the goals and objectives of the WI Coverdell Stroke Project
- Explain the components of a stroke system and the ideal practices of each partner (EMS, Referring hospitals, Stroke Centers).
- Identify the current barriers that exist within the current stroke practices for the region.
- Devise a regional stroke plan that standardizes EMS protocols, stroke definitions, and transport plans to improve stroke outcomes and treatment.
- Discuss a data-feedback system for regional reporting of stroke measures to hospitals and EMS leadership.
