Management of Acute Stroke in Older Patients – 2 CE

Activity Overview

This course in managing the risks of stroke provides healthcare professionals with an overview of the many symptoms of a stroke, how they manifest as people age, and which treatments are best for each individual.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this continuing education activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss the history of stroke treatments and how they’ve impacted the worldwide mortality rate
  2. Define the general purpose of acute stroke care and how it works to prevent a wide range of complications
  3. Define the general purpose of hyperacute stroke care and how it works to prevent brain damage in victims
  4. Talk about the role of DNR orders and how stroke victims are most likely to express their wishes over time
  5. Assess the nature of modern stroke studies and how their methodology affects patient outcome
  6. Analyze why researchers and patients have different priorities, and how this conflict can influence the quality of life for a patient
  7. Recall the most effective treatments for stroke, and why age should or shouldn’t influence administered treatment
  8. Discuss why studies often exclude those over 80 and how this impacts the collective body of knowledge of strokes
  9. Assess how timing affects the stroke victim and why healthcare practitioners need to think about stroke care long before they see a patient presenting with symptoms
  10. Review how formal screening for things like incontinence, retention, and dysphagia helps patients after they’ve suffered a stroke
