Prehospital treatment is of great importance for the outcome of patients and is receiving increasing research attention. This year's Newcomer Award winner, Mona Guterud, was honored at the research seminar for Division of Emergencies and Critical Care and the Divison of Prehospital Services at Oslo University Hospital, February 14th.

Mona Guterud, along with her team, has been recognized for their contribution in addressing the need for clinical decision tools to assess acute prehospital strokes. Their research project titled "Prehospital screening of acute stroke with the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (ParaNASPP)" conducted a stepped-wedge, cluster-randomized controlled trial. The results of their study were published in Lancet Neurology, showcasing the effectiveness of their approach.

By developing efficient screening methods, their work aims to ensure that a greater number of stroke patients receive immediate treatment, leading to improved outcomes. The fact that there were 26 potential candidates for this prize reflects the promising future of research in the divisions.

Congratulations to Mona and her team for being recognized as this year's Newcomer Award winners. Their dedication and commitment to improving prehospital stroke care is influential for medical advancements and ultimately benefiting the stroke patients.
