Stroke Systems of Care Collaborative

The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) is hosting a virtual Stroke Systems of Care (SSoC) Collaborative. The aim is to help rural and critical access hospitals across Wisconsin develop stroke systems of care that meet standards for achieving Acute Stroke Ready Hospital criteria and achieve better outcomes for stroke care.
 
Each session will be led by subject matter experts actively working in the field, with demonstrated success implementing innovative processes. Networking sessions will be offered for participants to partner with SSoC experts and peers.
 
The collaborative will launch on Jan. 21, 2021, and continue to meet regularly on most Thursdays through April 8, 2021.
 
This collaborative is open at no cost to Wisconsin hospitals, with a focus on SSoC for rural and critical access hospitals serving rural communities. Hospital stroke teams are encouraged to participate. This may include hospital leadership, providers, nursing staff, EMS, emergency department, stroke team leaders and representatives from all departments who provide care to stroke patients.
 
This free webinar series is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Coverdell Stroke Program at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Funding for the stroke program is made possible by the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Prevention Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  

Additional details will be shared soon. For more information or for questions, contact Jill Lindwall.
