Bi-State Stroke Consortium

Mission Statement:

Facilitate clinical stroke education and improve patient outcomes through collegiality and collaboration. 

Purpose of Consortium:

To provide evidence-based educational opportunities in the care of stroke patients for all members of the Bi-State Stroke Consortium

Current Geographical Reach:

The Kansas City metropolitan area, northeast Kansas and western Kansas

The Bi-State Stroke Consortium evolved from its beginning as an Operation Stroke group that planned an annual stroke conference for health professionals.  In 2006 the group chose to expand its reach by incorporating a Consortium model. Each member institution agrees to host a 4 hour stroke focused educational segment for nurses each calendar year.  Each Consortium presentation is open to staff from all member organizations at no charge.
