The Association of Neurovascular Clinicians (ANVC) is a Magnet recognized organization of stroke professionals dedicated to improving quality and access to acute stroke care. The organization was formed to meet the needs of interdisciplinary health professionals engaged in the care of stroke patients, and is the only stroke-specific professional membership organization in the world.
ANVC is the result of a coordinated effort by clinicians across the country to address the critical need for standardized certification of healthcare providers involved in the treatment of stroke. Despite the rapidly rising number of primary stroke centers around the country, IV fibrinolysis is sorely underutilized. With the publication of the AHA/ASA’s comprehensive stroke metrics and pending certification by Joint Commission, the need for basic and advanced stroke practitioners will be magnified even further. In an environment of limited resources every attempt to better utilize existing personnel will be the cornerstone for this stroke care expansion.
