Why would you attend the seminar ?

Basic trainees

If you haven’t sat the RACP exams yet, we are hosting a crash course that will prepare you for the exams to come. We will cover introductory content that explains the science behind modern stroke management. You will come away with a clear understanding of the pathophysiology of stroke and the principles of stroke management.


Advanced trainees

As a registrar you will be expected to manage complex stroke presentations and there is much ‘assumed knowledge’ that you will be expected to know. Our content would definitely benefit an advanced trainee with career aspirations as a Stroke Physician. Furthermore, even if your future career will only occasionally manage stroke patients e.g. as a non-stroke specialist taking after hours calls, this is an ideal opportunity to get ready for independent practice.



The field of stroke has progressed rapidly especially in the areas of hyperacute management and secondary prevention. Many of the recent changes will affect your stroke patients even if some treatments e.g. clot retrieval aren’t available at your hospital. The ASA seminar is an ideal forum to get up to speed with these changes and implement best practice for your patients.
