The International Stroke Conference is the world’s largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. This 2½-day conference features more than 1,500 presentations that emphasize basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the overall goal of developing more effective prevention and treatment. Sessions in clinical categories will center on stroke community risk factors, emergency care, acute neuroimaging, acute endovascular and acute nonendovascular treatment, diagnosis of stroke etiology, cerebral large artery disease, in-hospital treatment, clinical rehabilitation and recovery, and outcomes, quality and health services research. Sessions in basic science categories focus on vascular biology in health and disease, basic and preclinical neuroscience of stroke recovery, and experimental mechanisms and models. Further specialized topics include pediatric stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, nursing, preventive strategies, vascular cognitive impairment, aneurysm, subarachnoid hemorrhage and other neurocritical management, vascular malformations, and ongoing clinical trials. Cutting-edge presentations on these topics attract a wide range of healthcare professionals and investigators including adult and pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, neuroradiologists and interventional radiologists, physiatrists, emergency medicine specialists, primary care physicians, hospitalists, nurses and nurse practitioners, rehabilitation specialists, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, pharmacists, and basic researchers spanning the fields of cerebrovascular function and disease.
At the conclusion of the International Stroke Conference, participants should be able to:
- Identify recent advances in basic models of stroke and translational research.
- Evaluate recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of cerebrovascular disease.
- Analyze new and ongoing clinical research advances through late-breaking science and ongoing clinical trials sessions.
- Discuss the exchange of new research, treatment and intervention with scientists and investigators working in all areas of cerebrovascular disease.
- Interpret the rapidly changing areas within the stroke spectrum such as emerging options for the diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke, mechanisms of stroke recovery, and the impact of vascular cognitive impairment.
- Appraise the diverse challenges presented by cerebrovascular disease to specific populations, including ethnic and racial minorities, women, children, and developing communities.
