Right Place, Right Time: Evidence-based Policy Interventions to Improve Pre-Hospital Stroke Care

Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 2:30 -2:50 p.m., EDT
Sponsor: CDC Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention

This 20-minute Coffee Break presentation is for anyone seeking to improve stroke outcomes through policy approaches.

Every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. has a stroke. Emergency medical service systems (EMSS) and providers are essential for recognizing suspected strokes, providing timely transport and pre-hospital care, and reducing time to treatment. In advance of World Stroke Day on October 29, this Coffee Break will review seven evidence-based policy interventions that states have authorized to improve pre-hospital stroke care provided by EMSS. These policy interventions were identified through surveillance of existing state laws; an evidence assessment which screened over 900 studies and narratives from the peer-reviewed and grey literature; and consultation with a group of stroke experts from the field. Presenter is Colleen Barbero, PhD.

No need to register, simply join this event here. Audio information: 855-348-8390, 74215616. Past presentations are available at the Coffee Breaks archive on the CDC Website.

1305 Epidemiology and Evaluation Collaborative (EEC) Monthly Call
Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 2 - 3:00 p.m., EDT

Sponsor: NACDD CVH Team

EEC is a peer-led group of epidemiologists and evaluators who come together each month to work smarter and more effectively with 1305 and 1422 epidemiology, surveillance, evaluation, and performance measures. States share what they are doing, resources, and questions and provide feedback to CDC. The group is led by Liz Gebhart (NE), Paul Meddaugh (VT), and Brittany Brown (UT). Our October discussion will include conversation about what we have learned from our 1305/1422 epidemiology, surveillance, and evaluation efforts. Come see what we are all about! No need to register, just call 1-877-273 4202, room 793-903-441 at the time indicated above. To be added to the EEC distribution list and membership roster, please email MaryCatherine Jones.

We highlight events we think are especially worth your time, but there is a lot going on! Keep up using the Chronic Disease Events Calendar. The webinars in darker type are more directly related to Domain 3/Health Systems.
