Prevention focuses on treating an individual’s underlying risk factors for stroke, such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation, or diabetes through therapies and health promotion. This is important to prevent a first or recurrent stroke.
Hyper-acute stroke care refers to the key interventions involved in the assessment, stabilization and treatment in the first hours after stroke onset. This includes all pre-hospital and initial emergency care.
ACUTE STROKE CARE
Acute care is where the person is stabilized, diagnosis confirmed, plans are implemented to prevent complications, and when initial rehabilitation and recovery begin.
REHAB STROKE CARE
Stroke rehabilitation is known to reduce disability and dependence for stroke survivors, and evidence shows that more is better.
COMMUNITY AND LONG TERM STROKE CARE
Community is the centre of life, the hub from which all daily experiences extend. Achieving success for stroke survivors depends on a community of persons working together.
