About the Author:

As the Stroke Program Coordinator at Methodist Hospital, Pam Stout, MSN, RN, SCRN, has the opportunity to evaluate the care Methodist provides stroke patients and to continually look for ways to improve that care. 

Strokes present a bit of a puzzle, and as a member of the health care team, she plays a part in deciphering what caused the stroke and in educating the patient and family on prevention of future strokes.  

"With 80 percent of strokes being preventable, I believe it is our responsibility to ensure patients are aware of their stroke risk factors and in recognition of the signs and symptoms of stroke," said Pam.  "As the stroke program coordinator, I have I am lucky enough to be able to participate in community wide education events to help spread awareness before a stroke occurs, as well as follow patients who experience a stroke from arrival through discharge."

Pam began working at Methodist Hospital in 2002, and appreciates Methodist's commitment to improving patient outcomes at every level. She says the level of teamwork at Methodist sets it apart from other hospitals. 

In her spare time, Pam enjoys spending time with my husband, two boys and two adorable dogs. Pam and her husband love to spend time cooking and trying out new recipes. She is also in school full-time earning her Doctorate of Nursing Practice, which she should complete in 2019.
