The 2015 Canadian Stroke Congress updated program is now available. The Canadian stroke community recognizes The Congress Scientific Program as an important educational forum for Canadian stroke professionals. The program delivers high-quality science and education through plenary sessions, lively debates, clinical trial updates, poster and moderated poster presentations, simultaneous oral sessions, interactive workshops, public forums and more.

- Identify the latest advances and innovations in stroke prevention, acute management, rehabilitation, stroke systems, long term recovery and basic science;
- Describe state-of-the-art system approaches to stroke care and their application in practice;
- Discuss the latest evidence-based research and best practices with other attendees through networking and collaborations;
- Appraise their own stroke care practices relative to leading edge stroke research and evidence-based best practices; and
- Apply new knowledge and innovations to their current practice to improve care for people with stroke and their caregivers.
