The goal of this project was to expand the existing stroke systems of care curriculum for hospitalist residents to another clinical microsystem: stroke alerts. Stroke alerts involve complex interprofessional collaboration and transitions of care, yet must operate seamlessly to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Hospitalists must be able to provide frontline care to acute stroke patients, as neurologists may not always be readily available out in the community. The project team developed stroke alert simulation sessions to provide hospitalist residents with the opportunity to lead stroke alerts and hone their clinical decision‐making, communication, and teamwork skills.
