In 2010, key recommendations for ‘Managing Stroke Care Transitions’ were established to facilitate and support increasingly seamless, integrated care and improved outcomes for patients and their families and/or caregivers across the continuum of care. The Transitions recommendations of the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations has been updated in 2016.
Areas of emphasis include:
Support through transitions
Patient and family education
Early supported discharge
Community reintegration following stroke
A number of implementation resources and knowledge transfer tools have been identified
