Minnesota Stroke Partnership’s EMS Stroke Task Force has developed a unique training course focused on the role of EMT and paramedics in stroke diagnosis and treatment. The EMS Response to Stroke continuing education course will improve EMS providers’ knowledge of current practices for recognition and treatment of stroke signs and symptoms in patients.
EMS Response to Stroke is a FREE one-hour course worth 1.0 Continuing Education Units (CUE) for EMT and Paramedics in Minnesota. After completing the course on line you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Please visit the resources page at www.mnstrokepartnership.org to access the continuing education course.
