Clinical guidelines for stroke prevention and management

The National Stroke Foundation developed the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010 to provide a series of evidence-based recommendations for the management of stroke.

This document combines and replaces the previously published Clinical Guidelines for Acute Stroke Management (2007) and Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery (2005).

We also produce concise versions of the guidelines that are discipline specific.
