Stroke: New Thoughts on an Old Disease

Dr Tim Cassidy FRCP Edin FRCPI. Consultant Stroke Physician, St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and the leading cause of severe disability in Ireland. With the changing demography in Ireland, more strokes will occur. Our symposium on “New thoughts on an Old Disease” will provide an update on stroke.

There is increasing evidence for the use of imaging to help us manage the hyperacute stroke patient. Dr Karl Boyle from Beaumont hospital will discuss the use of such advanced neuro-imaging to investigate the acute stroke patient and allow us to make better decisions about treatment strategies.

Atrial fibrillation is a common cause of stroke and it’s prevalence increases with age. Given the effective drug therapy of anticoagulation in the prevention of further ischaemic strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation, Ms Imelda Noone will discuss the role of the nurse practitioner in the management and investigation of the stroke patient who may or may not have atrial fibrillation.

Professor Ronan Collins, the National Lead will discuss the National Stroke Strategy and what has been achieved over the last 12 months and the plans for the future of stroke care in Ireland.
