Emergency Medicine focus on Acute Ischemic Stroke: Interactive Virtual Patient Simulation

 

“The course helped me focus on real time challenges & potential delays in treatment. It was a great experience to learn how to manage stroke patients. Highly recommended for all physicians, nurses & residents.”

Salman Muddassir, M.D. 

Please join us on August 10th for Emergency Medicine focus on Acute Ischemic Stroke: Interactive Virtual Patient Simulation

The Center for Disease Control has labeled stroke as our nation’s fifth leading killer and it  is still the greatest cause of serious long-term disability nationwide.  It is generally accepted that, beyond preventative maintenance, the most effective way to avoid serious physical disability upon  onset of a stroke is to employ immediate effective action.  Emergency Medicine focus on Acute Ischemic Stroke: Interactive Virtual Patient Simulation offers an interactive approach with a blended learning format highlighting the importance of accurate and timely diagnosis of stroke and patient care.  Increasingly complex, time-sensitive scenarios require learners to utilize critical-thinking skills, prompting  members to depend on diagnostic indicators and patient information to determine appropriate care, and achieve Door-To-Needle (DTN) time within 60 minutes.

Learning Objectives:

 

Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

  1. Enact a hyper-acute treatment plan based on a clinical assessment of an AIS patient using the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), identify inclusion and exclusion criteria for thrombolytic, and accurately calculate dosing and administration requirements of thrombolytic.
  2. Demonstrate excellent communication techniques to be employed by Acute Stroke members to meet the goal of reducing the median time to treat AIS appropriately.
  3. Utilize evidenced-based concepts provided in this course to consider changing behavior where appropriate or relevant.

 

Target Audience:

 

  • Emergency Medicine Physicians
  • Advanced Practice Providers
  • Nurses
  • Fellows
  • Residents.

 

Competencies:

 

The competencies being addressed are patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, and professionalism.
