7th Annual UTSW Stroke Symposium: Critical Decisions in Stroke (RP1711C)

Our theme for this year's 7th Annual Stroke Symposium is "Critical Decisions in Stroke." The target audience will be apprised of the latest in acute stroke practice with emphasis on critical care aspects of comprehensive care. Attendees will be updated on the present evidence for carotid disease management, interventional management of aneurysmal and ischemic stroke, and care in a neurointensive unit. Physicians and advance practice providers will also gain knowledge on hypercoagulable states in stroke and advanced care of the hemorrhagic stroke patient. The American Heart Association will also be providing an update on current initiatives pertinent to organizational approaches to stroke care.
