Overarching Targets For 2030
Four over-arching targets for 2030 have been identified:
1. To reduce the absolute number of strokes in Europe by 10%
2. To treat 90 % or more of all patients with stroke in Europe in a dedicated stroke unit as the first level of care
3. To have national plans for stroke encompassing the entire chain of care from primary prevention to life after stroke
4. To fully implement national strategies for multisector public health interventions to promote and facilitate a healthy lifestyle, and reduce environmental (including air pollution), socioeconomic and educational factors that increase the risk of stroke
Focusing on seven domains, the SAP-E incorporates the latest scientific research on stroke treatment and prevention as well as the patients’ needs as stroke survivors. Therefore, the entire chain of stroke care was incorporated from primary prevention to life after stroke.
For each of the seven domains, four comprehensive targets, to be reached until 2030, were set.
In addition to the seven domains, improvement projects and implementation initiatives should also focus on research activities and therefore, prioritised research areas for translational stroke research have been identified.
