Best Practices

In November 2017, the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations (CSBPR) for the Secondary Prevention of Stroke were updated in parallel with the development and release of the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Consensus Statement: Secondary Stroke Prevention during Pregnancy.

The Secondary Prevention of Stroke module focuses on management of recurrent stroke risk reduction in patients who have experienced an initial stroke or transient ischemic attack. In some cases, this module will also provide healthcare providers with guidance for individuals at high risk of a stroke or TIA based on current health status and the significant presence of one or more vascular risk factors.

Both have recently been published in the International Journal of Stroke and are part of the sixth edition of the Heart & Stroke Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations
