Overview

Stroke is among the top ten causes of child mortality and may cause lifelong disability. Rapid recognition and the institution of new hyperacute treatments can improve outcomes, yet the diagnosis is often delayed or missed.

This course was created by expert faculty from the Boston Children’s Hospital Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center to support your development as an institutional champion for improving the care of children with pediatric stroke. You will leave with an action plan for an educational or clinical practice/quality improvement intervention and a certificate of successful completion. “Pediatric Stroke Champions” utilizes highly engaging learning methods that have been proven effective in promoting long-term knowledge gains.

Course Format

This highly interactive and personalized format combines an engaging live/synchronous online workshop component with flexible asynchronous opportunities for self-directed learning and interaction with subject matter experts. This course will empower participants to become “pediatric stroke champions” who will then disseminate knowledge and practice changes back to their home institutions through developing educational resources for their teams or creating stroke rapid response pathways.

Participants will first develop core background knowledge with self-paced pre-course learning through a combination of key references in multiple media, reflection on current practice and goals, and self-assessment knowledge questions. The live/synchronous portion of the course will be interactive and discussion-based with case examples, small group exercises, and panel discussions with faculty subject matter experts. Following the course, participants will continue to engage with faculty in a community of practice as they return to their home institutions to implement their action plans.

Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  1. Recognize the presenting signs and symptoms of possible pediatric stroke, particularly in high-risk populations such as children with sickle cell disease or congenital heart disease
