Stroke Care Course

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services

It is important for physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers to recognize major warning signs for stroke (e.g. weakness, numbness, changes in speech) because of the limited treatment window for stroke patients. Development of a stroke protocol that includes a program to educate staff about stroke warning signs and required treatments cangreatly improve the treatment of stroke patients and save more lives.

This training scenario program addresses opportunities for optimal stroke care in the acute phase. Healthcare professionals' ability to quickly and accurately identify patients at risk for having a stroke and to recognize stroke-type symptoms is important for safe and effective treatment.
