What is the difference in initial treatment in patients with acute stroke and TIA?

I know the difference between stroke and TIA is that a stroke lasts longer than 24 hours and a TIA resolves within 24 hours, but what happens if a patient with a TIA presents before their symptoms resolve? Would they be treated as a stroke patient since the medical team wouldn't know it was going to turn out to be a TIA?
