Acute Ischemic Stroke: The Clock Is Ticking

CME: 1.25

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to address the educational needs of neurologists, emergency room physicians, and hospital clinicians (including hospitalists, nurse practitioners, PAs, and clinical pharmacists). It may also benefit other health care providers caring for patients at risk for acute ischemic stroke (AIS).

Program Overview

Faculty members who are expert in all aspects of the management of acute ischemic stroke use case scenarios to contextualize current guideline recommendations and emerging data related to thrombolysis in patients who have large vessel occlusion stroke, wake-up stroke, and mild stroke. The faculty also addresses important aspects of collaborative care and optimizing technology for telestroke in appropriate settings.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Summarize the latest data from clinical trials of thrombolytic agents used in the treatment of AIS
  • Assess the use of collaborative acute care across care settings as it applies to optimal management of patients with suspected AIS
