This webinar is all about the Mobile Stroke Unit - a custom-built specialist Ambulance Victoria vehicle that has an inbuilt CT scanner. Staffed by acute stroke personnel, this is an innovative approach to reducing the diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke.
The Mobile Stroke Unit is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere and will be piloted over the next five years. It is a collaboration between Ambulance Victoria, The Royal Melbourne Hospital, The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, the National Stroke Foundation, the Stroke Clinical Network and the National Health and Medical Research Council.
