Course Description:
The Brain Attack course is a yearly comprehensive review of the field of cerebrovascular diseases and stroke. It covers epidemiology, diagnosis, acute management, secondary prevention, and rehabilitation for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. The intended audience is physicians (neurologists and other specialists), advance practitioners (NP's and PA's) and nurses from the tri-state area as well as nationally. The course is given yearly with a series of core topics focusing on acute stroke management, secondary prevention, and is supplemented by lectures each year covering the latest advances in the field.

The faculty for the course includes stroke specialists from the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physician and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medical College as well as faculty from the departments of radiology, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, rehabilitation medicine, nursing, and expert guest faculty from outside our institution. Our multidisciplinary team provides a broad-spectrum curriculum and a practical approach to the cerebrovascular field. The Brain Attack course fulfills the 8-hour annual CME/CH requirement set by the State of New York for Primary Stroke Center designation and is an important vehicle for practitioners to obtain this vital education.

Educational Objectives:
It is intended that this CME/CH activity will lead to improved patient care by updating health care professionals on the latest advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of brain attack and stroke.
• Identify the optimal diagnostic strategy to evaluate and treat acute ischemic stroke with thrombolytics and thrombectomy.
• Analyze the results of the most recent clinical trials on the approaches to prevention of a recurrent stroke, including the use of anti-thrombotics, and life-style changes.
• Identify the risks and benefits of surgical therapy for the treatment of acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
• Understand treatment options for high risk of recurrence stroke subtypes, particularly cancer, intracranial atherosclerosis, and atrial fibrillation when the risk of anticoagulation is prohibitive.
• Report the latest approaches to recurrent subdural hematoma and the acutely dizzy patient.
