Who knows the most about living with a health problem? Other people with the same problem. You bet your physician or other health professionals can offer advice. But there is nothing like a helping hand from other people to put things in perspective.
Think of us... the next time your group or regional organization needs a speaker. UP Health System - Marquette's Speakers' Bureau is a free service designed to assist community members in acquiring accurate and up to date information on health related issues.
CE Opportunity Links
* NIH Stroke Scale CertificationThe NIH Stroke Scale is a critical component of acute stroke assessment. The American Stroke Association, in conjunction with the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) has developed this free, CME/CE certified, online training program for healthcare professionals to learn or review how to administer the NIH Stroke Scale for acute stroke assessment, using footage from the 2004 CINE Golden Eagle Award winner and new NIH Stroke Scale Training Videos developed by the NINDS.
UP Health System - Marquette is providing this link to encourage Nurses and physicians who work with stroke patients to obtain education to improve assessment of stroke patients, NIH Stroke Scale rating, and patient outcomes.
This is an interactive program which takes several hours to complete and can be started and returned to at a later time if you are unable to complete in one session.
You will need to complete each section in order to move on to the next. CME/CE certificate is available at the completion of the full program. On completion of this program, please send a copy of your certificate of completion to Education.
