The prepublication standards for The Joint Commission’s new Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Center program are now available on the website. The program was developed in partnership with The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) in order to improve the quality and safety of care for complex stroke patients. These prepublication standards will be available until the standards publish in late 2012. The eligibility criteria for the program are also available on The Joint Commission website. In addition, a Stroke Certification Seminar hosted by Joint Commission Resources (JCR) will take place on Wednesday, June 6, 2012, at Joint Commission headquarters in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. The one-day program includes three educational tracks for comprehensive stroke centers, primary stroke centers, and stroke rehabilitation. For more information about the seminar, visit the JCR website or call 877-223-6866.
