Best Practices in the Care of Cryptogenic Stroke Patients: Review of the 2021 Clinical Guideline

A male healthcare worker reassures his elderly male patient, who is seated in an exam room. Both men are wearing masks.While a precise percentage of cryptogenic strokes is unknown, approximately 35% of strokes are thought to be cryptogenic. This suggests nearly 240,000 strokes annually for which no clear etiology can be distinguished. Experts concur the embolic insult in cryptogenic stroke may be due to subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF). It is estimated about 15% of ischemic strokes are caused by AF and that there is an elevated risk of secondary ischemic stroke due to AF.

This 3-part educational webinar series on cryptogenic stroke focuses on the 2021 Guideline for the Prevention of Stroke in Patients with Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack and provides for:

  • A systematic approach to diagnostic evaluation 
  • Developing a diagnostic pathway based on the patient’s risk profile 
  • Learning of available tools to monitor patients 
  • Pathways for improved decision making

Shared Decision-Making and Hypertension Treatment

Moderator: Eunjoo An, PhD, RN

Shared decision-making has become a method to enhance patient involvement in health care decisions, patient-provider communication, and patient-centered care. When selecting the best hypertension management plan, your patients may have different goals and preferences for treatment. Adherence may be increased if the plan aligns with the patient’s preferences. In this webinar you will learn how to engage your patients and incorporate shared decision making into your practice. Barriers to implementing strategies will also be discussed.

Clinical Management of HCM: Medical, Invasive, and Advanced Therapies

Doctor in mask looking off camera in dark surgery room Surgical and interventional options such as surgical myectomy or alcohol septal ablation may help those with obstructive HCM to reduce or remove the obstruction. A similar option is unavailable to those with non-obstructive HCM. Heart transplants are considered as a last resort for HCM patients who progress to end stages of the disease. Learn the latest in the clinical management of HCM in this free webinar.

Secondary Stroke Prevention: Evidence-based Recommendations
This webinar is highlights evidence-based clinical recommendations from the recently published 2021 Guideline for the Prevention of Stroke in Patients with Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack. Patients having had an ischemic stroke/transient ischemic attack may experience improved outcomes and quality of life based on the prevention strategies for reducing subsequent stroke risk.

Ethics and Professionalism: A Common Ground of Understanding
A roundtable discussion on issues like shared clinical decision-making; the relationship of clinicians with patients, other clinicians, and organizations; allocation of resources; and scientific responsibility and integrity in research.

Key Implications for Clinicians in the 2020 AHA/ACC Guideline for the Management of Patients with Valvular Heart Disease
In your evaluation of patients with suspected valvular heart disease, learn the diagnostic strategies for early detection of valvular disease and long term management with appropriate tools for assessment and intervention.

Posterior Circulation Stroke Webinar Series

Timely recognition of the signs and symptoms of posterior circulation stroke (PCS) is critical for properly diagnosing PCS, understanding the clinical course, and managing patients with acute PCS diagnosis. Delayed or incorrect diagnosis results in inadequate acute care and poorer outcomes. While PCS can be challenging to recognize; in this webinar series learn to distinguish characteristic clinical patterns and apply AHA/ACC guideline recommendations.

ATTR Amyloidosis Webinar Series

Amyloidoses are a heterogeneous group of systemic disorders characterized by extra cellular deposition of a protein-derived material (known as amyloid) that disrupts normal tissue structure and function. Improve the care of patients with Transthyretin Amyloidosis (ATTR amyloidosis) by closing practice and knowledge gaps in disease presentation as experts discuss the complexities of this progressive, degenerative, and multisystemic disorder.
