Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP) stroke researchers and clinicians were well recognised at the European Stroke Organisation Conference in Prague last month.

Europe’s foremost forum for discussing and disseminating the latest standards and news on stroke management and care, the Conference featured world-leading speakers and news on scientific breakthroughs.

Head of Stroke at Monash Health Associate Professor Henry Ma said the MHTP delegation was very fortunate to have won two of the poster awards among the few selected for an oral presentation.

One of the Best Poster Awards was given to Associate Professor Ma (co-investigator Professor Thanh Phan) for his research into the endovascular clot retrieval service boundary utilising the Google Map application.

“More than 1000 abstracts were submitted to the Conference, and our group (including clinical trials, imaging and informatics) had five posters and one oral presentation,” Associate Professor Ma said.

Associate Professor Dominique Cadilhac, Head of the Translational Public Health and Evaluation Division, Stroke and Ageing Research at Monash University won best poster prize.

“There were over 4000 delegates at the European Stroke Organisation Conference, and mine was one of several posters chosen among hundreds for a 3 minute oral presentation during the welcome drinks,” Associate Professor Cadilhac said.

Associate Professor Cadilhac presented new statistical methods comparing 30-day hospital mortality rates using data from the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry linked with data from hospital admissions and death registrations.
