NIH Stroke Scale
National Stroke Association
The NIH Stroke Scale can be used as a clinical stroke assessment tool to evaluate and document neurological status in stroke patients. The stroke scale is valid for predicting lesion size and can serve as a measure of stroke severity. On completion of training, participants will:
- Be able to consistently apply appropriate scores for neurological deficits in stroke patient
- Use the scale to assess changes in neurological deficits in stroke patients over time.
