Education & Professional Development
The Toronto Stroke Networks (TSNs) work collaboratively with regional partners to enable a cross-systems approach to Knowledge Translation (KT). This KT approach assists organizations in the standardization and implementation of stroke best practices and involves a variety of professional development activities for healthcare providers.
Toronto Stroke Networks Virtual Community of Practice
The Toronto Stroke Networks Virtual Community of Practice (TSNs VCoP) is an interactive website for all health professionals working, researching, learning, and exploring professional development opportunities in the area of stroke care. It serves as a resource for healthcare providers to maintain interprofessional communications, collaborate with colleagues, discover new resources and learn about, with and from each other.
Provincial Stroke Rounds
Provincial Stroke Rounds are organized by the Ontario Regional Education Group (OREG) approximately six times a year. Typically these rounds are held on the 1st Wednesday of the month between 8-9 am and are broadcasted by videoconference through the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN). These rounds cover a variety of topics primarily focused on new or emerging best practice research in a variety of stroke care areas (assessment, treatment, prevention, etc). To participate, please contact your department’s OTN coordinator or your regional Ontario Regional Education Group (OREG) representative.
