Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

The care of individuals following traumatic injury is complex, as is their risk for development of stroke. Nervous and musculoskeletal system injuries can make assessment and recognition of neurologic changes a challenge. Lecture and case studies are utilized in this foundational content to discuss and identify injuries at the greatest risk for stroke development, the pathophysiology of why and the evidence-based treatment plan to support individual recovery and progression in healing.


  • Identify traumatic injuries and pathophysiology that contribute to increased risk for stroke development.
  • Discuss assessment techniques and findings predictive and representative of new onset stroke in the presence of trauma.
  • Describe evidence-based treatment modalities for prevention of acute stroke following traumatic injury.
