- make evidence-based decisions for managing the acute phase of the most common epidemiologic problems, e.g. intracranial pressure (ICP), abnormal body temperature, changes in blood glucose, swallowing, high blood pressure or seizures;
- take on an advisory, empowerment or professional development role in training colleagues to manage situations of clinical, assistential or rehabilitative instability and complexity;
- implement and coordinate clinical care pathways for stroke patients to ensure timely, integrated, coordinated medical intervention aimed at reducing the chance of death and improving functional recovery;
- communicate “bad” news and deal with the reactions of the patient and their family;
- use counselling techniques with the patient and their family in the acute and post-acute phases;
- encourage the participation and empowerment of the patient and their family in decision-making processes regarding treatment.
