193919 - Rural Update for Stroke Hyperacute Interventions

  • : Online

We are aiming to provide update GP education (combined to visit to the rural hospitals) about stroke management, focused in secondary prevention. Stroke management (acute, subacute) has changed dramatically over the last 5 years, and we are due to do this update, with a special focus in rural GP and those stroke patients who has delayed/limited access to Neurology.

Relevance to General Practice

GPs need to be abreast of hyperacute stroke assessment and management to ensure rural patients have access to these therapies. There have been major advances in hyperacute stroke care over the last 3-5 years. Telestroke will be playing a major part in changes to the current model of care for acute stroke management. This education session will ensure that local GPs are aware of the latest evidence-based practice, processes and management systems for stroke to ensure access to timely intervention.
Early symptom recognition and management is the key to optimise patient outcomes.
Advances in imaging techniques help us to comprehensively assess and manage these patients. A TIA may not “just be a TIA”.
