With this toolkit, the American Stroke Association equips you with educational tools and resources to help us share the life-saving message of this campaign with Kansas City.
- Develop a prevention pilot communications campaign focused on driving awareness of stroke warning signs in order to:
- Increase knowledge of the warning signs among the community
- Decrease delay between the onset of one or more symptoms and the decision to seek care by calling 9-1-1 immediately
- Measure outcomes to determine effectiveness of the campaign's awareness efforts
This informative guide educates hospitals of other campaign materials included in the toolkit and how they can be shared with the community.
