Pediatric Stroke Virtual Grand Rounds


September 26, 2022 12:00- 1:00 pm via AHEC Zoom. AHEC registration is required for free CME and available here (there is also a link embedded in the flyer): Diagnosis and Management of Acute Stroke in Children (seahec.net) Background: Stroke is frequently missed when children initially present with signs of cerebrovascular ischemia, leading to significant delays in diagnosis and therapeutic intervention. This is partly due to a lack of awareness that infants, children and teens can suffer from stroke, and represents a major barrier to timely access to acute stroke care. This lack of knowledge in both medical providers and parents/caregivers can lead to poorer outcomes for children with stroke. Join Dr. Casey Olm-Shipman (University of North Carolina School of Medicine) and Mary Kay Ballasiotes (patient-family advocate and executive director of International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke) to learn more about recognizing, diagnosing, and managing acute pediatric stroke. Objectives

  • Recognize signs and symptoms of acute stroke in children.

  • Identify barriers to care access for children with acute stroke.
