Educational Objectives: By the end of the activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify and apply the best treatment options for patients with neurovascular diseases (i.e aneurysms, AVM, DAVF, Moya-moya, carotid stenosis), using evidence-based practices and expert consensus. Provide recommendations for age-specific related treatment specific to the age and geriatric population as applicable.
- Integrate cultural competency into the discussions that will assist in integrating the attitudes, evidence-based treatment recommendations and skills that enables a health care professional to care effectively for patients from diverse cultures, groups and communities.
- Transfer the evidence-based treatment recommendations of individual practitioners through collaboration of case management.
- Align with regional KPHC Initiatives and Comprehensive Stroke Center.
