Stroke care continues to rapidly evolve; best practices are changing based on randomized trials. This workshop will cover the continuum of care from prevention to community re-integration for stroke. In particular, we will review the most recent advances that change practice on a daily basis including: expansion of the thrombolytic window and endovascular therapy for stroke, dual antiplatlet therapy for TIA and stroke, advances in brain imaging, anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation, predicting outcome after stroke, and enhancing post stroke recovery.
