Thrombolysis following stroke
This module aims to provide an overview of thrombolysis treatment following acute stroke; and to ‘demystify’ thrombolysis treatment to improve understanding and accessibility. Useful resources on this topic can be found below.
The answers to all the test questions are contained within the module. This information may be provided in the 'Additional Information' boxes on some of the pages.
You can now go on and learn more about thrombolysis by undertaking the Thrombolysis Masterclass. This Masterclass is aimed at senior staff who are involved in making the decision to treat with thrombolysis. The module consists of a series of virtual patient scenarios which focus on patient history, examination and imaging. You will be asked to decide what treatment options you would choose and have the opportunity to compare your treatment decision with selected experts and other learners who have completed the cases.
