WORKSHOP, organized by The Danish Foundation Trygfonden

How do we increase efficiency of acute treatment and avoid disability or death after stroke?

Attend the workshop and join in the discussion as to how we can increase rates of acute treatments and post-stroke function and survival rate. The purpose is to collect ideas for new initiatives, and the questions up for discussion will be:

• How do we engage the population to familiarize themselves with the early symptoms and call 1-1-2?

• How can the prehospital system be used and improved for even more effective treatment of stroke patients?

• How do we create increased focus on stroke research to generate new methods and initiatives that can protect the brain and improve post-stroke function and survival? 

Prior to the discussion there will be brief presentations:
