Spectrum of Stroke Care: From Acute Care to Rehab and Recovery

By Stacy Holberg

UNIMED

Brett C. Meyer, MD, University of California San Diego, will give an informative presentation on stroke care, “Spectrum of Stroke Care: From Acute Care to Rehab and Recovery,” on Friday, December 7, at La Casona Convention Center. The lecture is cosponsored by UC San Diego Health and UNIMED clinic in San Miguel.

Dr Meyer’s presentation will focus on stroke care, beginning with what you really need to know about stroke prevention. From there, he will review stroke treatments and conclude the presentation, explaining the stroke rehabilitation approaches to address post-stroke motor and speech issues.

Meyer is a stroke neurologist and Codirector of the Stroke Center at UCSD Medical Center, a Professor of Clinical Neuroscience and the Vice Chair of Neurosciences’ Operations in the Department of Neurosciences at UCSD. He is also the Medical Director for the UCSD Department of Telemedicine. He is board certified in neurology, and subspecialty board certified in cerebrovascular diseases by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He specializes in acute cerebrovascular disease therapies and technological evaluation and treatment techniques.

Meyer’s clinical research is varied, encompassing clinical stroke scale evaluations, acute and hyperacute therapies for stroke and cerebral hemorrhage, and Internet applications of telemedicine technology for the evaluation and treatment of stroke patients. Meyer was the Principal Investigator for an NIH-funded clinical research trial assessing the use of telemedicine in acute stroke management consultations. This five-year trial assessed whether the use of telemedicine technologies can result in appropriate treatment decisions for acute stroke and assist with thrombolytic administrations. He is funded by the NIH via a Program Project (SPOTRIAS) assessing translational research in acute stroke and was recently awarded a network grant and renewal grant as a Regional Coordinating Center for developing late-phase stroke therapies for acute prevention and rehabilitation.

Meyer provides clinical evaluations for patients in the Stroke Research Clinics, Hillcrest and Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center’s Ambulatory Care Stroke Clinics, and inpatient admission and consult services at UCSD Hillcrest, Thornton, and Sulpizio centers.

Stroke treatment and rehabilitation are just two of the many programs at UC San Diego Health, which is ranked nationally in multiple medical and surgical specialties, including neurology and neurosurgery, cardiology and heart surgery, cancer, pulmonology, orthopedics and geriatrics. The UC San Diego Health International Clinical Program receives patients from around the world who benefit from the international concierge services that assist patients and families before their visit, during treatment in San Diego, and during coordinating follow-up with their local or hometown physician afterwards.
