Beyond the Trials: Navigating Real World Dilemmas in Stroke Care

A partnership of St. Luke's Neurosciences and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center

This exciting four-day event will include discussions regarding the historical context of current stroke treatments and devices, as well as emerging therapies and technologies for the treatment of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. The meeting will emphasize how to handle patients that don't necessarily fit the landmark randomized, controlled trials. The program is designed to be dynamic, with short lectures in the morning punctuated by round table discussions, followed by case presentations and head-to-head debates during the evening sessions.
