12th Annual Yatsu Day Symposium: Virtual Healthcare Technologies Expanding the Boundaries of Stroke Care

August 27, 2021

Needs Statement

Telestroke has had a tremendous impact on stroke treatment and management, as one of the most rapidly expanding applications of telemedicine, delivering much-needed stroke expertise to hospitals and patients. Physicians lack adequate knowledge of current applications of Telestroke in the spectrum of stroke care. This activity will help close gaps in physician knowledge of applications of Telestroke along the spectrum of stroke care from acute stroke treatment to rehabilitation.
