  • Dear Stroke Coordinator:
            This letter is a save the date’ announcement of my inaugural and very special  nurses-only symposium.   The event date is May 6, 2019 and I have invited the Stroke Coordinators from California's 180+  Primary and Comprehensive Stroke Centers. If a hospital's Stroke Coordinator position is temporarily unfilled, or that person is unable to attend, my invitation can be accepted by the ED CNS/Educator or Stroke Program Abstractor,

​           The May 6th symposium date was chosen to honor you during National Stroke Month, Nurses Week, and particularly on Nurses Day, 2019.  As a CNS/Stroke Coordinator, for years I found it unusual that very few events were designed for specific Stroke Coordinators needs - fewer as recognition events.   I believe you'll find Operation: Scrubs is uniquely educational, entertaining, and recognizes the many contributions Stroke Coordinator nurses make in their everyday fight against stroke – truly the boots on the ground providers of healthcare..  

         The event takes place in scenic and weather friendly Marina Del Rey, California, aboard the luxury FantaSea One mega yacht.  Both  were chosen specifically with you in mind. 

          The content of the provided continuing education curriculum will include: 
          •  Advanced neuroanatomy and significance in patient presentation
          •  Management of data through hands on opportunities 
          •  Basic research, quality, performance improvement in stroke 
          •  Future directions in Joint Commission and hyper-acute stroke management
          •  "Development in Prehospital Stroke Care" by acclaimed keynote speaker,
              USC Neurologist/Associate Professor Dr. Nerses Sanossian; also "Data Management and
              and Joint Commission Preparation" by Darcie Fitzgerald, OT/L ... and ...
​                 •  Special Stroke Survivor Panel discussing "The Emotional Side of Stroke" with Keynote                    Speaker, Jack Bouchet sharing"It's Amazing What You Can Do With Only Half-A-Brain."

​             Other educational events are typically a repeat of the same content.  Conversely, your education curriculum is suited to the practical, everyday needs of a Stroke Coordinator. 
          The symposium begins with a quality continental breakfast, includes a mid-day soup-and-salad bar + dessert, and ends with a sunset hosted bar reception, gourmet buffet dinner and Marina Del Rey harbor cruise ... with celebrity participation for the special nurse recognition portion of the event. 
          All Operation:Scrubs staff and symposium presenters are volunteers. Event's audited net proceeds will annually replenish the Pamela Jane Nye Neuroscience Scholarship Fund established and administered through the American Heart/Stroke Association Donor Advised Fund program. Scholarships are available to Operation:Scrubs alumni and future attendees seeking advanced neuroscience education.
          So, please save this May 6, 2019 (National Nurses Day) event in your 
calendar noting Priority Registration opens February 1st.  Event is expected to fill 
quickly.  I look forward to seeing you on May 6th. 
                                                                                                                          Until next time ...
