Murdock Stroke Educational Series: Online Modules

Please note: These modules are not currently compatible with the Chrome browser.  Please use a different browser to complete these modules.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  Please contact with any questions.

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.
