Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative (RWHC) is facilitating a
second “Stroke Systems of Care” task force to help hospitals
achieve Acute Stroke Ready Hospital (ASRH) criteria. This task
force is intended to expand the learning from the first 4
sessions offered 2015-2016 as well as educate new hospital
teams to stroke best practices. All those attending the previous
4 sessions are encouraged to participate along with those
joining us for the first time.
This task force is open to RWHC member and non-member
hospitals to give Providers, Nursing Staff, EMS, Emergency
Dept., and Stroke Team Leaders an opportunity to review
ASRH criteria, identify which elements are in need of
development, and share best practices for implementation.
These 4 sessions will include an emphasis on education of
TIA’s, incorporating the voice of the patient/customer in
process improvement, and inpatient stroke identification and
RWHC facilitators will be Janet Wagner, BSN, MS-OLQ,
CPHQ (Quality Consultant) and Darla Karasek, RN.
In addition experts will be presenting best-practices for
content areas for these sessions. Task force teams can
attend in person at RWHC or virtually.
The event is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Coverdell
Stroke Program at the Wisconsin Department of Health
Services. Funding for the stroke program is made possible by
the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Prevention Program
at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Participants will be asked to complete pre-work for each of
the four sessions. Each session is 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
(lunch provided for those attending at RWHC).
