|Health Care Professionals|
Welcome to all our Professional Health Care readers,
We are very excited about the research and development work that has been taking place here in Canada over the past few years to establish a national stroke strategy. As part of this body of work a number of toolkits have been developed to assist health care professionals in their day to day work.
PLEASE take the time to click through to each of the toolkits as well as the 2010 update and the new website. We hope that you will find these toolkits helpful and that you will make good use of them. THANKS!
Toolkit #1 of 7 Canadian Stroke Strategy Community Reintegration Toolkit
Toolkit #2 of 7 Canadian Stroke Strategy Outpatient Rehab Resource Toolkit
Toolkit # 3 of 7 Canadian Stroke Strategy Stroke Unit How To Guide
Toolkit # 4 of 7 Canadian Stroke Strategy EMS Educational Resource
Toolkit # 5 of 7 Canadian Stroke Strategy Best Practices Toolkit

Also a link to the Canadian Stroke Strategy Canadian Best Practices Recommendations for Stroke Care 2010 Update
and a link to the new Canadian Best Practices Recommendations for Stroke Care website
These resources have been in development over the past five years as part of the developing Canadian Stroke Strategy to improve outcomes as related to prevention, response, treatment, rehabilitation and reintegration phases of stroke.
As health care professionals you are working in these very areas every day. PLEASE, make the best use possible of these toolkits yourself as well as making others aware and encourage them to make use of them too.
By promoting education and awareness one person at a time we can STOP STROKE!
We will post again soon,
