Laura Heitsch Research


The focus of our research is acute neurologic emergencies such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. In addition we’re interested in studying the management of stroke by EMS systems. Our current projects revolve around the management of a large database of all historical BJH stroke patients. We are also interested in process improvement using strategies from LEAN management. Our future ideas revolve around observation protocol development for transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and stroke literacy assessment.
