Stroke Continuum of Care
for Health Care Providers
Stroke is a medical emergency. Public awareness is the first step in a coordinated approach to stroke care.
Stroke prevention includes a comprehensive approach to prevention of first or recurrent transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke.
Hyperacute refers to care offered in the first 24 hours after stroke and the first 48 hours after Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA).
Acute stroke care refers to the key interventions involved in the assessment, treatment or management, and early recovery in the first days after stroke onset.
Time is Function: Stroke rehabilitation can be provided in all care settings and assists people to reach their optimal physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative, and/or social functioning.
Community and Long Term Care
