Targets for 2030
Defining a Common European Framework of Reference for Stroke Care Quality that includes:
a) development or update of European guidelines for management of acute stroke care, longer term rehabilitation and prevention;
b) definition of a common dataset covering core measures of stroke care quality to enable accurate international comparisons of care both in hospital and in the community (including structure, process, outcome measures, and patient experience).
Assigning a named individual who is responsible for stroke quality improvement in each country or region.
Establishing national and regional level systems for assessing and accrediting stroke clinical services, providing peer support for quality improvement, and making audit data routinely available to the general public.
Collecting patient-reported outcomes and longer-term outcomes (e.g. 6 months and 1 year), covering both hospital and community care.
