The purpose of the workshop, is the following:
– To agree on the strategy and the goals for the initiative in the represented hospitals and countries.
– Based on the experience in the hospitals specific topics have identified that could be optimized. With this in mind an interactive training package was developed , as an example of how this could potentially be implemented in the country and hospitals. The workshops are hands-on and discussion based sessions, where it is aimed to promote practical solutions on how to optimize and standardize the stroke pathway (Hyperacute workshop), simplify and streamline the medical decision making process (Decision making workshop), simplify through a stepwise approach the CT imaging interpretation (CT imaging workshop). The event also covers the importance of quality monitoring and data collection (Quality monitoring session), how to apply the NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS workshop), how to include in-hospital dummy patient simulations on daily hospital training and the importance of the pre-hospital organization and engaging with the pre-hospital staff in order to achieve optimal DTT times (Pre-hospital session).
