Tools and Resources
The National Stroke Foundation supports best practice stroke care through the development and maintenance of the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010. Producing guidelines is only the first step in supporting health professionals to deliver evidence-based stroke care. We therefore develop a range of implementation support tools to help put this evidence into practice and we share the resources developed by stroke professionals around Australia. A step-by-step guide to Implementing clinical guidelines stroke management 2010 provides a framework for how to go about applying the guidelines in practice.
