Too often, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH, or hemorrhagic stroke) is treated as the forgotten middle child of stroke. Acute ischemic stroke has a number of quality measures associated with it, but too often, clinical providers take a nihilistic approach to hemorrhagic stroke. However, national guidelines exist as well as a wide body of supportive data for specific treatments. The goal of this program is to ensure clinical providers in emergency medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery, are most up to date with ICH management and have clear, actionable protocols that they can take to the bedside.

This course is aimed at those who treat acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). This course is ideal for doctors, nurses, physician assistants, NPs, pharmacists, emergency medical services, and any other health care provider in this space. If you work in the emergency department, inpatient unit, stroke unit, intensive care unit, or any other unit that cares for ICH, this course is for you. This course which offers 8 hours of stroke CME, will highlight the things you can do now to reduce the risk of death and improve neurologic outcome for this devastating disease.
