2016 Stroke/Telestroke Conference

The ability for the Providence Spokane consulting stroke neurologist to visually share in the evaluation experience and participate in the patient’s examination as if they were at the bedside is invaluable in detecting and evaluating stroke for rural hospital patients.

This conference will bring health care professionals together from throughout the Central Basin and Inland Northwest to understand and share the challenges of implementing stroke care within a regional telestroke system network.

Registration

Cost: $60 if registered by May 5; $85 if registered on or after May 6.

Target audience

The course is designed for neurohospitalists, neurosurgeons, adult critical care intensivists, interventional neuroradiologists, internal medicine hospitalists, nurses, and therapists from across the region who are involved in acute treatment, care and rehabilitation of stroke patients.

  • Understand treatment objectives in EMS and acute care for acute ischemic stroke
  • Review neurosurgical and neuroendovascular management of cerebral aneurysms
  • Discuss endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke
