Created in 1997, the American Stroke Association is dedicated to prevention, diagnosis and treatment to save lives from stroke — America’s No. 4 killer and a leading cause of serious disability. We fund scientific research, help people better understand and avoid stroke, encourage government support, guide healthcare professionals and provide information to enhance the quality of life for stroke survivors. To learn more, call 1-888-4-STROKE or browse strokeassociation.org.
Getting back to work after a stroke is a big step for many survivors. Our cover story discusses how to know when you’re ready, understanding your rights and more in the Spring issue of Stroke Connection magazine.
Target: Stroke is a campaign created to help hospital teams achieve the goal of door-to-needle (DTN) times of 60 minutes or less for ischemic stroke patients that receive thrombolytic therapy by providing evidence-based strategies, clinical decision support, measurement tools and other resources.
