The ultimate goal of the 19th Annual Cerebrovascular Update: Stroke: A Global View - From Doorstep to Recovery is to improve the delivery of care for stroke patients by improving the performance of practicing clinicians as they care for patients with stroke-related medical complications. The Course Directors, Pascal M. Jabbour, MD, and Diana L. Tzeng, MD and Course Co-Directors Robert H. Rosenwasser, MD, MBA and Rodney D. Bell, MD, from the Thomas Jefferson University Departments of Neurology and Neurological Surgery, have developed an agenda that includes in-depth presentations on What’s New in the Literature, Innovations in Acute Stroke Intervention, Surgical Novelties, Cardiology and Stroke, and Challenges in the Management of the Stroke Patient.

This conference has been specially designed for practicing neurologists, neurosurgeons, emergency medicine physicians, critical care physicians, hospitalists, neuroradiologists, primary care physicians, internists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, case managers, emergency medical technicians, and rehabilitation therapists who treat a myriad of stroke-related conditions and diseases in their practice.
