Updates in Secondary Prevention of Ischemic Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack

Program Overview

This CME/CNE activity will highlight updates in secondary prevention of ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack. The expert faculty, Dr. Stephan Mayer, will first delve into the pathophysiology and disease burden of early recurrent ischemic neurovascular events. Next, Dr. Mayer will review the importance of antiplatelet therapy with both ASA and P2Y12 inhibitors in acute and early secondary prevention. Following, the faculty will analyze the importance of risk stratification and net clinical benefit in managing early secondary prevention of recurrent ischemic neurovascular events. Finally, Dr. Mayer will examine optimal approaches of transition of ongoing care of their stroke patients to other healthcare professionals who provide more chronic and ongoing care.
