2020 KP National Virtual Stroke Conference Details:
The Main Conference Date: Wednesday, September 23rd and Thursday, September 24th, 2020.
The conference will be virtual and held each day from 8:00am - 1:00pm with designated breaks between speakers
This two-day conference will open at 7:30 am and promptly start at 8:00 am to allow for attendees to work through any technological issues that may arise as our platform this year is completely virtual. We have renowned speakers and panelists from across the globe who will be addressing high priority neurological issues. Each session will have a chat Q&A box to allow for questions from the audience. Due to the high volume of attendees and limited time for each session, all questions may not be addressed during the session, but will be responded to by the speaker at their earliest convenience. We are excited to bring this virtual platform to each of you to provide current up-to-date issues in neurological and stroke care.
- Our keynote speakers are Dr. S. Clay Johnston and Michelle Camicia PhD, RN. We will have exciting neurological topics including the AVERT trial, presented by Dr. Julie Barnhardt, panel discussions on Posterior Circulation and stroke, COVID-19 and Stroke, TNK, Door-In-Door-Out, Palliative Care, Pediatric Stroke Care Pathways. We will also have presentations on Moyamoya Disease, Post-Stroke Anticoagulation Therapy, and Neuro Embolectomy.
CME, CEU and PT educational credits are pending as of July 1st, 2020.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What are the technology requirements to participate in this virtual conference?
A: You will need a computer with software capabilities for Webinar presentations. This includes computer audio either via built in speakers, a headset, or earbuds. You will also need a keyboard to type in any questions to the presenters in the Q&A box. It is best to test your system prior to the day of the conference to ensure you dont have any issues.
Q: Are there Continuing education credits / CME offered for this conference?
A: Continuing education credits and CME credits are pending approval at this time. Once approved, they will be offered to physicians, nurses, and therapists.
Q: How will I get CME or continuing education units for the conference?
A: You must attend both days of the conference and complete the survey monkey after the conference is complete. Questions will be specific to the objectives for each session as well as an evaluation for the course.
Q: Is there a price to attend only one day attendance?
A: Unfortunately, no. This very reasonable price is for both days of the conference.
