Summary

Patient outcomes are significantly improved when people with stroke receive care in stroke units. However, access and time spent in stroke units vary greatly across Victoria.

We explored the barriers and enablers to access for patients to a specialist stroke unit for improved patient outcomes.

Outcome

Through comprehensive engagement, investigation and learning, we have established an in depth understanding of access to stroke unit care. This will guide future improvement activity.

We held a Stroke unit care round table event to wrap-up the scoping phase of this project.
