I last wrote about the collabortive Telestroke Initiative when we released our survey results last year. Since then, we have been in transition and earlier this week launched our new Telestroke Initiative site, which is built upon a wiki platform.

I last wrote about the collabortive Telestroke Initiative when we released our survey results last year. Since then, we have been in transition and earlier this week launched our new Telestroke Initiative site, which is built upon a wiki platform.

Part of our transition has been a new partnership with the Western States Stroke Consortium and this has resulted in us expanding our focus from just the Northwest to the entire Western part of the US.  The site includes a growing library of information and resources to help anyone wanting to establish a telestroke program or to develop their existing services.  We will also soon return to scheduling informative discussions and educational web programs.

Please visit the site or share a link with other in your network who may have an interest.  If you are involved with telestroke and want to get involved, just let me know.
