EP Monthly has taken a new twist on its Standard of Care Project.
This month, the editors published a statement regarding whether use of thrombolytics is the standard of care for a stroke. They’re asking emergency physicians who agree with the statement to log in and cast their vote.
The theory behind the project is that if several thousand emergency physicians agree that the standard of care does not require that thrombolytics be given for an acute stroke, those statistics can be published and used as evidence at a trial.
The whole concept is in its early stages, but if you’re interested, go to the home page for the project:
