What you'll learn in this expert session

Acute stroke management has improved dramatically over recent years, but reducing long-term disability from this condition still relies firstly on prevention but also time to treat.

Treatment of acute stroke has been one of medicine's greatest success stories over the last couple of decades. Between dissolving the clot or physically retrieving the thrombus, hundreds of patients with an ischaemic stroke are now being saved from years of disability - but still, time is of the essence. In this talk, neurologist Prof Bruce Campbell outlines the advances in acute stroke management, and the key factors involved in ensuring that patients access appropriate treatment in a timely fashion. In addition, Prof Campbell will give an update on best practice for stroke prevention including blood pressure targets, AF screening and, very importantly, the investigation and management of TIAs.
