The Essentials of Stroke Care provides a practical tool to guide healthcare professionals in improving stroke care and developed as part of the Stroke Action Plan for Europe.
The Guide contains an overview of evidence-based interventions covering the entire chain of stroke care. The Essentials of Stroke Care sets an essential and much-needed standard for providing stroke care in the pre-hospital setting, during the acute hospital stay, rehabilitation and life after stroke, and includes surgical, pharmacological, non-pharmacological, and supportive interventions.
