Evidence-based Management Approach

Where available, it is advised to follow the Ministry of Health guidelines in your local setting.

This activity is based on recommendations from stroke guidelines and expert consensus, including:

  • Guidelines for the Management of Spontaneous Intracerebral Hemorrhage (From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association)9
  • Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke (From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association)10
  • European Stroke Organisation (ESO) Executive Committee; ESO Writing Committee Guidelines for management of ischaemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack11

A hypothetical patient, Mr T, will be used to illustrate the applications of these guideline recommendations in the clinical setting. Continuing medical education is essential to improving patient care and health outcomes.
