Swedish Medical Center received a grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust to implement stroke telemedicine partnerships with four small/rural hospitals in Washington State. As part of this grant, we are pleased to offer online TeleCME Stroke educational programs. The Department of Health passed legislation in 2009 for the development and implementation of a Stroke System of Care for Washington State. The Stroke System of Care requires hospitals to designate their capabilities and if the hospital decides to participate, staff must complete stroke annual education. This series serves that purpose.
The goal of these online CME modules is to train stroke care teams in consensus-based standards for best practices and how these practices can be implemented in their facility, both with and without telemedicine support from Swedish Stroke Center.
Emergency Medicine health-care providers
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to provide better patient care through an increased ability to:
- Outline general principles for quality improvement of stroke patients
- Describe the structure and process for stroke care delivery systems
- Review outcome measurement pertaining to the care of stroke patients
- Learning objectives for each module are included in the information pop-up window.
