Aurora BayCare Medical Center Stroke and Neurovascular Symposium 2021
The Aurora BayCare Stroke and Neurovascular Symposium will provide learners with the most up-to-date information to treat stroke and neurovascular conditions. The care pathway for a stroke patient is very complex beginning from admission to discharge and varies across diagnosis. The symposium will provide evidence-based information to supplement the clinical practice of registrants.
This course is intended for neurologists, emergency room physicians, critical care physicians, hospitalists, advanced practice clinicians and registered nurses.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Describe the risk factors and care pathway of stroke during pregnancy.
- Describe the chronic phases of stroke recovery as related to rehabilitation.
- Identify the treatment options for chronic headaches.
- Examine updates of inpatient neuro rehabilitation.
- Examine updates in stroke triage and improvement of care by the Coverdell Stroke Program in the state of Wisconsin.
- Describe the role of decompressive craniectomy in a stroke patient.
- Identify differentiators in stroke centers and the role of telestroke services in the stroke system of care.
Below are the individual topics being presented during the symposium. Each presentation will be its own live Microsoft Teams meeting. The first topic will kick off the symposium, and the rest will follow in order.
