The online training consists of four interactive cases that lead participants through patient encounters. Each case presents a patient with potential stroke-related complaints and prompts participants to make management decisions. In each scenario the patient’s clinical status varies depending on the timing and accuracy of participant answers. Each case ends with a summary of the key points and each case takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Participants will then take the post test for 1.5 continued education hours upon completion approved by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS).
