A Game Changer for Stroke TreatmentPatients with severe strokes have far better outcomes when treated with a drug to dissolve a blood clot and a procedure to dislodge and remove it.
Rush Clinic Takes Off at O'HareA partnership between a Chicago-area business and the Rush University College of Nursing has provided one group of workers not only free health services, but advocacy for care.
My patients constantly challenge me, and I like that. I like that I’m constantly learning. And especially now with the Internet, they look things up. And they have very specific questions. And they have a lot more knowledge, I feel like, than they did in the past, which is great.
If they’re not invested in the treatments that we’re talking about, then it’s not really worth doing, and so I hope that together we can find a course of treatment that works best for them. Whether it’s medication, whether it’s an exercise regimen, whether it’s a diagnostic test, a change in their diet, I want to find something that works for them.
