Providing follow-up care for patients after stroke
When stroke hits, getting to the hospital quickly is critical. Follow-up care after hospitalization is equally important.
In the SLUCare Stroke Outpatient Clinic, patients are thoroughly evaluated to determine the underlying cause of their stroke and what can be done to prevent stroke from happening again.
Nurse practitioner Annie Skorupa guides patients through the evaluation process. She coordinates testing as needed for each patient — from radiology and cardiology tests to blood tests and physical, occupational or speech therapy. She educates patients about health and lifestyle factors that contribute to stroke, and strategies for minimizing future stroke risk. She helps patients set goals and expectations for their recovery and answers patient questions.
Skorupa works closely with SLUCare neurologists Dr. Eli Feen, Dr. Randall Edgell, Dr. Abhay Kumar and Dr. Ahmed Jafri. In addition to seeing stroke patients, Skorupa also provides follow-up care for patients with aneurysm.
