Paramedicine and acute stroke


There has never been a greater focus on the important role paramedics play in the care of those suffering acute stroke. Stroke systems of care are evolving and innovation in mobile diagnostics is on the horizon but a strong foundation of clinician knowledge is critical. This webinar will introduce you to stroke subgroups, clinical localisation and bypass decision making. Participants will develop an understanding of stroke clinical localisation and will be able to examine bypass decision making in stroke.

Presented by: Dr Wayne Loudon (PhD, GradDipCPP)

Target audience

Paramedics of all practice levels, including intensive care paramedics, and clinical educators. This would also be appropriate for allied health practitioners and nurses.
