Stroke: Knowledge Transfer
|Course code MEDI6350||Units 10||Level 6000||Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Medicine and Public Health|
Health professionals have access to increasing amounts of evidence about stroke management. How do we effectively translate this evidence into clinical practice which enhances the outcomes of those at risk of stroke, or directly affected by stroke? In this course, health professionals will have the opportunity to explore an area of clinical practice that is of professional interest and/or concern, review the relevant evidence and investigate strategies for applying the evidence into clinical practice. The most recent literature will be reviewed, case studies analysed and theories applied to the individual clinical settings and health service management systems illustrating opportunities to improve these processes.
