Evaluation and Management of Stroke in the ED

By: Michael Gooch DNP, ACNP-BC, FNP-BC, ENP-C

Every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke with nearly one-quarter of them having had a previous stroke. Patients present with a spectrum of signs and symptoms. This learning activity is designed to guide the ENP in the approach to the evaluation and management of the patient with possible stroke in the ED.

At the end of the session, learners will be able to:

  1. Identify risk factors for strokes.
  2. Recognize clinical guidelines which influence care of the possible stroke patient. 
  3. Formulate an ED plan of care including appropriate medication therapies for patients with suspected stroke.

This activity is approved for 1.0 contact hour(s) of continuing education (which includes 1.0 hours of pharmacology) by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Activity ID 20064283. This activity was planned in accordance with AANP Accreditation Standards and Policies.
