New Stroke Presentation, Workup, and Treatment Guidelines
Med-Challenger is excited to announce updates of our Stroke Presentation, Workup, and Treatment materials to incorporate the most recent recommendations from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) recommendations.
Shortly after the 2018 publication of the AHA/ASA Comprehensive Stroke Guidelines, several stroke studies were completed, which led them to retract the 2018 recommendations and republish them as the significantly changed stroke guidelines. Med-Challenger’s Stroke Presentation, Workup, and Treatment materials reflect these fundamental practice changes.
Clinicians interested in urgent care education, emergency care education, and stroke center training will find this to be an invaluable resource. For those seeking to meet comprehensive stroke center CME requirements or primary stroke center CME requirements or to earn stroke center CME or other State Required CME, this material offers 3 hours’ worth of CME credit – AMA PRA Category 1 credit, ANCC contact hours, and ACEP Category I credit.
The review Q&A in this content are followed by longer than usual explanations, which assures that learners can quickly review and absorb the new stroke guidelines directly from Med-Challenger. Links to the full AHA/ASA guidelines are also included for further reading.
“This is a perfect example of why Med-Challenger’s proprietary learning methodology is so important - in a stroke situation, urgent care and emergency medicine clinicians need to have learned and retained the essential treatment information,” remarked Med-Challenger CEO, David Beard.
Med-Challenger’s Stroke Presentation, Workup, and Treatment materials are now available in all Med-Challenger exam review and CME courses for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants. Also included in all Med-Challenger PRO bundles.
