New video assessment of stroke elearning now available

Posted on: November 30th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new elearning session to support a lifesaving ‘on the spot’ stroke diagnosis service has been developed for ambulance crews and stroke specialists.

The clinical video assessment for stroke (CVAS) model allows ambulance crews to video call stroke physicians to discuss and assess potential stroke patients. This approach accelerates treatment options for time-sensitive conditions such as thrombolysis and thrombectomy by making sure the patient is promptly transferred to the right facility for treatment, such as a hyperacute stroke unit (HASU), a local emergency department.

This elearning introduces the priorities of the CVAS service and helps stroke clinicians to confidently perform CVAS assessments, recognise important presentation patterns and avoid common pitfalls so that patients can be treated in the most time efficient and focused way.

There will be a short assessment at the end of the 20-minute session which must be passed to allow the training to be completed.

To find out more and access the elearning, please visit the CVAS programme page.
