Topic: “Good” is not good enough: improving long-term outcomes after stroke/TIA
Recognize that, while urgent acute stroke/TIA management is vital, these acute events imply long-term adverse outcomes
Understand the potential impact of non-traditional risk factors including post-stroke depression, OSA and cognitive impairment (DOC)
Explore how administrative health data can be paired with broadly applicable assessments (and hopefully, interventions) to try to improve the long-term risks.
