The Essentials of Stroke Care guide is for healthcare professionals to support them improve stroke treatment and care and to help implement the Stroke Action Plan for Europe.

It contains an overview of evidence-based interventions and the minimum standards of care a stroke survivor should expect through their entire chain of care including the pre-hospital, acute hospital stay, rehabilitation and life after stroke.
