Standarized globally harmonized Program
This globally SUBSIDIZED program is now widely recognized as the industry standard training and certification program now globally accepted by healthcare, clinical research organizations, sponsors, CROs, IRBs and international regulatory bodies. It is primarily used by healthcare providers to document proof of competency in the use of the NIHSS with regulatory agencies.
Quality Assurance Standard
This globally accepted program is also the only QA controlled program designed to focus exclusively to minimize inter-rater reliability issues during clinical trials. The target audiences for this program are healthcare professionals, emergency physicians, neurologists, nurses, qualified raters and students.
