Stroke was selected as one of the first Quality Based Procedure medical conditions to be implemented and the Ontario Stroke Network is leading the implementation.
The Ontario Stroke Network worked closely with Health Quality Ontario, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and clinical experts to develop the Quality Based Procedures: Clinical Handbook for Stroke (Acute and Post-Acute).
