VSCN webinar: Updated clinical guidelines for stroke management
The Stroke Clinical Network is hosting a webinar to outline key aspects of the updated clinical guidelines for stroke management. The guidelines span pre-hospital and acute care, secondary prevention and rehabilitation through to community reintegration and highlight known evidence-practice gaps revealed in the Stroke Foundation audits.
The National Health and Medical Research Council-approved Australian guidelines for stroke management were released by the Stroke Foundation in September 2017. The guidelines have since been updated to reflect the results of thrombectomy trials beyond 6 hours as a pilot of a ‘living guidelines’ approach to regular updates.
Associate Professor Bruce Campbell is a consultant neurologist and Head of Stroke at the Royal Melbourne Hospital as well as principal research fellow in the Department of Medicine, Melbourne Brain Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, University of Melbourne. Assoc Prof Campbell is also a director of the Stroke Foundation and co-chaired the 2017 stroke guidelines working party.
