The British Society of Neuroradiologists (BSNR) has produced Training Guidance for Mechanical Thrombectomy (Lenthall, R. et al. Clinical Radiology, Volume 72 , Issue 2 , 175.e11 – 175.e18) which details the training that will be required for practitioners from different clinical backgrounds to achieve the necessary skills and experience to effectively contribute to the acute stroke service. This guidance will underpin all routes to increasing the workforce.
The Supplementary Guidance to Facilitate the Training of Interventional Radiology Consultants to Undertake Stroke Thrombectomy has been produced by The Royal College of Radiologists, the British Society of Interventional Radiology, the British Society of Neuroradiologists and the UK Neurointerventional Group.
This BSNR/UKNG/RCR/BSIR collaboration released this guidance to help hospitals train more doctors in emergency mechanical thrombectomy for acute stroke.
