Stroke Symposium Will Provide Information On Patient-centered Care

Published: May 15, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 15, 2013) — The UK HealthCare/Norton Healthcare Stroke Care Network is hosting a one-day conference Saturday focusing on the advanced quality currently available in stroke care.

 

This conference, titled "Distinction - Beyond The Measures," will give the learner a broad perspective, emphasizing safe, effective and patient-centered care.

 

The event will be from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A Auditorium.

 

Topics move past the quality indicators to examine aspects of value in stroke care including quality and access throughout the stroke care continuum.

 

Attendees will then be able to use this information in their own practice to strive for achievement of conscientious symptom management, and patient outcomes including appropriate self-care, functional independence, demonstration of health-promoting behaviors, health-related quality of life and having a perception of being well cared for.

 

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss stroke-care quality aspects from an inter-disciplinary approach along the continuum of care
  • Discuss application and quality aspects of the NIH stroke scale score
  • Review an innovative approach to addressing disparity in stroke care access
  • Describe the clinical features of retinal vascular occlusions and clinical correlation to stroke
  • Examine components to enhance quality of life in stroke and vascular dementia
  • Review preparation strategies and components of a Primary Stroke Center certification survey
  • Discuss improving door to needle response times in IV tPA administration from a community hospital’s perspective

 

Dr. James M. Gebel Jr. of the Akron General Medical Center in Ohio will give the keynote address, titled "NIH Stroke Scale Score: Past Development, Present Applications and Future Opportunities."

 

Following a morning of speaker presentations, breakout sessions will focus on areas including physician quality and rehabilitation quality.

 

The conference is open to administrators, physicians, physician assistants, fellows, residents, ARNPs, registered nurses, interns, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, students, stroke survivors, stroke caregivers and anyone interested in learning more about stroke.
