The various presentations in the agenda cover the continuum of care of stroke from pre-hospital evaluation and treatment, acute management and updates in thrombolytic administration for wake-up stroke patients, cardiac risk factors for stroke, surgical and endovascular intervention options for recurrent stroke prevention for stroke patients with carotid or intracranial vascular disease and use of technological advancement as a tool for post stroke rehabilitation and recovery. The goal is to reduce the gap between existing practice in the care of a stroke patient and to discuss current updates and recommendations that can impact and improve overall patient care and outcome.
