Description:
Stroke:

This course will provide a comprehensive update on ischemic stroke prevention and the evaluation and management of acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage, along with other cerebrovascular conditions. Both established and emerging management strategies will be addressed by expert lecturers and discussants for this course. Discussion time will allow attendees to have their questions answered. In addition, several debate sessions will highlight current controversies in the field.

Neurology:
This comprehensive, one-day course will provide a focused, complete, and advanced update for clinical neurology across subspecialties. Using a clinical case or video-based format, both established and emerging therapies and diagnostic approaches will be addressed by the expert lectures and panelists/discussants in this course. It will also augment learning by providing visual teaching materials. Evaluation of common as well as more rare disorders in neurology will be covered by the diverse and knowledgeable course faculty from the rapidly growing NYU Grossman School of Medicine Department of Neurology.

Educational Objectives:
Stroke:

After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
• Identify patients who might benefit from intravenous tPA outside of the usual time windows and conditions
• Properly recognize pitfalls in the interpretation of perfusion imaging that could otherwise lead to erroneous decision making
• Identify patients with central retinal artery occlusion who might benefit from thrombolytics or endovascular therapies
• Recognize and manage acute cerebrovascular disorders in patients infected with COVID-19
• Recognize racial and ethnic disparities in stroke care and describe possible methodologies to reduce them and mitigate their effects on patient care
• Properly evaluate and manage patients with stroke due to infectious or neoplastic etiologies
• Appropriately evaluate and manage patients with unruptured cerebral aneurysms as well as those with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage
• Appropriately institute stroke prevention strategies in patients with various ischemic stroke subtypes
• Describe and weigh the risks and benefits of restarting anticoagulation after intraparenchymal hemorrhage
• Appropriately prognosticate the likelihood for motor and/or language recovery after ischemic stroke and discuss a novel option to help improve motor recovery after stroke

Neurology:
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
• Identify neurologic problems and determine which patients to treat or refer to other health care professional for additional treatments
• Obtain an appropriate history and perform a physical exam to diagnose different and complex neurologic diseases
• Consult with their colleagues in other subspecialties in order to determine the appropriate course of treatment for the patient
• Develop strategies to incorporate technology in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with epilepsy.
