52-year-old John presents to the ER reporting that he has a headache that just doesn’t go away and his vision is a little blurry. He is sure it is just another sinus infection. As you are taking his history you notice he is slurring some of his words and suddenly he slumps over. Are you prepared for the emergency that is happening right in front of you? Patients may present with or develop neurological symptoms at any time, making it essential that healthcare providers possess the ability – and the confidence – to quickly assess these changes and intervene appropriately. Stroke patients have a short window for treatment and they depend on your expertise. Join Cedric McKoy, MSN, ACNP, for this in-depth look at the advances in stroke management. Every nurse needs to know these critical concepts in order to provide the best and most up-to-date care to patients and their families. Cedric is well known for his ability to make complex concepts understandable and provides useful tips and tools you can immediately put into practice.

Register today and be prepared to make the difference between a good and bad outcome when faced with your next stroke emergency.
