Abstract

Stroke is a major public health issue in Australia. This Better Health Initiative partnership project is designed to rigorously evaluate a methodology to improve the monitoring and use of data for stroke, as well as an intervention to address evidence-practice gaps for essential interventions known to have a direct association with patient outcomes. The findings will provide a platform for national roll-out of appropriate and enhanced data collection solutions linked to an effective model for improving clinical care and outcomes of stroke.
