Canadian Stroke Network

Nursing care across the stroke continuum is based upon awareness and understanding of the complexities of cerebrovascular disease, understanding of current best practices and translation to the practice setting. Major contributions to stroke nursing knowledge and practice therefore, arise from interdisciplinary research. In 2008, the Canadian Stroke Strategy released the Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care, which provided a comprehensive set of evidenced-based recommendations and guidelines. The focus of these workshop modules is to facilitate nurses’ acquisition of knowledge related to evidence informed practice and to prepare nurses to assume a leadership role in the management of interdisciplinary patient care.

There are four interactive modules addressing a component of the stroke care continuum: Prevention of Stroke, Hyperacute Stroke Management, Acute Inpatient Stroke Care, Stroke Rehabilitation and Community Re-integration.

Each module contains a power point slide deck, a Facilitators Guide and a Participant Workbook. Each of these modules can be used independently or combined with the other modules. Each module requires approximately 3.5 hours to complete.

To further support knowledge translation, 2 additional modules have been developed: Stroke 101 and Stroke Reverse Jeopardy.Stroke 101 provides a basic overview of stroke pathophysiology and Stroke Reverse Jeopardy can be utilized to facilitate knowledge transfer.
