Safer Care Victoria’s Stroke Clinical Network supported the development of guidelines for the subacute management of childhood stroke.
Developed by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, this guideline is the first of it’s kind in Australia and provides a treatment framework for the 100-300 Australian children who survive a stroke every year.
The guidelines will improve consistency of care and standardise referral and service delivery pathways to ensure that all Victorian children receive the highest possible quality of care. They provide evidence-based and, where there is currently insufficient evidence, consensus based recommendations to support rehabilitation post childhood stroke.
Safer Care Victoria endorses these guidelines.
