Emanuele Spina

University of Naples “Federico II” – Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive and Odontostomatology, Naples (Italy)

“During the weeks at Inselspital, my main goal was to capture the decision-making process of the Stroke Team, and to steal some tips to apply to my daily routine once came back … The richness of this experience, nevertheless, was not made up of only neurovascular concepts. What I witnessed was a highly organized staff, not only regarding supervisors or residents but also concerning the entire system of stroke care. From nurses to physiotherapists, from neuropsychologists to logopedics, everyone knows what to do and did it in the best way possible, resulting in a higher chance of a good outcome for patients.”

“I acquired new techniques which are not part of the daily practice in my home country, for example midbrain ultrasound for patients with movement disorders or contrast-enhanced transcranial dopplers for patients with no temporal bone window. The training provided detailed knowledge on
vascular anatomy and advanced protocol for transcranial doppler ultrasound. This hands-on experience supported my theoretical knowledge to be used in practice and increased my confidence in diagnostics.”

“I got the chance to learn a lot about the stroke treatment options and the organizational part of work, which is as important as treating the patient. Every case was discussed in a staff meeting, where everyone gave their opinion on the patient. I think this is essential, since every case is complex and sometimes there is no consensus definitive criteria for treating certain patients.”
