Stroke Care in Ontario: Hospital Survey Results

Tu JV, Porter J. January 1999

Stroke is a complex and devastating disease, requiring a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to care. This report provides an inventory of stroke care programs at acute, rehabilitation and complex continuing care hospitals in Ontario.

In particular, the report examines the availability of hospital resources and programs for stroke patients, access to rehabilitation services and imaging technology, readiness of hospitals to administer thrombolytic therapy, and regional referral patterns. The results indicate wide variation in access to various types of stroke diagnostic services and treatments in Ontario and indicate the need to develop a more coordinated stroke care delivery program.
