Description
A primary goal of the NIH/NINDS- funded FL-PR CReSD, one of 4 national Stroke Prevention Intervention Research Programs (SPIRPs), is to evaluate stroke disparities in Florida and Puerto Rico and to develop culturally tailored interventions to close identified gaps in acute stroke care. The production of the FL-PR CReSD Research Education and Training Core online series accomplishes the delivery of education on cultural competencies and disparities for a broad-spectrum audience of stakeholders.

The online training will provide skills and strategies needed to enhance stroke disparities research and decrease stroke disparities in Hispanics and other groups. The training videos are designed to increase awareness of health disparities, particularly stroke disparities, with emphasis on stroke risk factors and delivery of acute care as related to race/ethnic, gender and geographic disparities. The online training will consist of 8 videos each less than 30 minutes. 

This session, Stroke Disparities Research (28:01 min), will review the public health burden of stroke in the United States, temporal trends in stroke mortality and stroke incidence in the US; describe stroke disparities by race and ethnicity, including African Americans and Hispanic Americans; and discuss disparities in stroke subtypes: infarct subtypes as well as intra-cerebral hemorrhage.

Learning Objectives 
At the completion of this online course, the learner will be able to:

  1. Review the public health burden of stroke in the United States, temporal trends in stroke mortality and stroke incidence in the US.
  2. Understand stroke epidemiology and identify existing gaps in the field.
  3. Discuss trends in stroke incidence by race/ethnicity.
  4. Describe race/ethnic differences in cerebrovascular disease by stroke subtype.
  5. Review the objectives and design of the FL-PR Collaboration to Reduce Stroke Disparities.
  6. Describe the public health impact of statewide participation in a stroke registry.
