Pre-Conference: State-of-the-Science Stroke Nursing Symposium
Agenda addresses nursing issues along the continuum of stroke care.
The State-of-the-Science Stroke Nursing Symposium on Feb. 7 is a can’t-miss forum designed to provide cutting-edge information for nursing, rehabilitation and other health care professionals who treat patients and families in all phases of stroke care from prevention to treatment in the emergency department through rehabilitation. The symposium will update and inform the audience about nursing issues along the continuum of stroke care (primary and secondary prevention, ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke management, rehabilitation and program development).
According to Wendy Dusenbury, program chair, health care professionals should attend this symposium as there will be presentations on a wide range of topics, including care of patients with stroke, care of families and caregivers, and stroke program growth and management. “There will be something for everyone,” she said.
