Stroke Continuing Education Package

Our two online continuing education Stroke courses in one easy to purchase bundle with a price savings. This combination of Stroke: An Introduction and Stroke Management: Advanced provides 5.5 contact hours of stroke continuing education.

In 2003, The Joint Commission launched its Primary Stroke Center Certification Program. As of January, 2011, there are more than 800 certified primary stroke centers. The designation signifies that the hospitals meet requirements to provide emergency diagnostic and therapeutic services by a multidisciplinary team 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to patients with symptoms of acute stroke. Eight hours of annual stroke specific continuing education is required for the staff that comprise core stroke teams and emergency department staff is required to have knowledge of the stroke pathophysiology, presentation, assessment, diagnosis and treatment including thrombolytic therapy. Nurses on non-stroke units, where stroke patients are not routinely cared for, and ancillary staff should receive education related to recognition of stroke signs and symptoms and activation of the organization’s emergency response processes. This course package would be excellent for all healthcare providers, and will assist hospitals seeking both initial and renewal of primary stroke center certification.

Upon successful completion of each course with an exam score of 80% or greater a “Certificate of Completion” is instantly available to print.
