Symposium Description The State-of-the-Art Stroke Nursing Symposium is a forum designed to provide the most current information to nursing and other healthcare professionals who treat patients and families in all phases of stroke treatment from the emergency department through rehabilitation. The symposium will update and inform the audience about nursing issues along the continuum of stroke care (ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke management, rehabilitation and stroke program development.) The goal of the program is to share innovative best clinical practices that have been developed to optimize patient outcomes throughout the stroke continuum of care. A plenary program and break-out sessions are planned to meet the educational needs for nurses and healthcare professionals at various levels of skill. Learning Objectives 1. Compare and contrast the difference in stroke symptoms between women and men 2. Explain the stroke systems of care networking: metro vs. rural; telemedicine vs. telephone 3. Describe hypothermia including its pathophysiology 4. Utilize advanced stroke concepts to: a. Translate clinical research into clinical practice b. Assess clinical trials c. Analyze case studies in research-based endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke and nursing implications 5. Summarize the essentials of standard clinical practice and stroke center development including: a. Neurovascular anatomy and pathophysiology for nursing practice b. Primary and secondary stroke prevention: teaching concepts c. Stroke center recertification 6. Analyze rehabilitation and recovery components including: a. Bio markers and depression b. Avoiding medicare denials c. Evidence of the value of today s virtual presence for caregivers 7. Create an individualized professional development plan to include: a. Writing an abstract b.
