The Registry of the Canadian Stroke Network (RCSN) was established in 2001 and is intended to be part of a comprehensive stroke surveillance system that may be used to monitor and evaluate approaches to stroke care delivery, inform policymakers and formulate recommendations for best practice in stroke management.
This report summarizes the management structure and research methodology of the RCSN, and provides some basic analyses of the characteristics, care and outcomes of stroke patients seen at participating institutions.
