How we manage stroke in Australia presents a comprehensive picture of the impact of stroke on patient, their carers, the heath system and aged care services. It brings together the latest Australian data on the various phases of the management of people with stroke across the continuum of care. Where possible, it compares current practice to clinical guidelines for best practice in the care of stroke patients. It identifies improvements in care, areas where more needs to be done and gaps in our knowledge.
