Stroke Prevention Clinics

There are four stroke prevention clinics in Southeastern Ontario located in Kingston, Brockville, Perth and Belleville. The role of each clinic is to

  • provide streamlined access to diagnostic testing, optimal medical and surgical management and counseling in lifestyle change to reduce stroke-risk for those at highest risk of stroke ( e.g. recent transient ischemic attack).
  • provide an integrated, comprehensive, inter-disciplinary approach to stroke prevention and case management for these high-risk patients
  • facilitate planning and implementation of primary and secondary stroke prevention strategies for the respective area of the region
  • work in partnership with primary care, acute care, stroke rehabilitation, community care access centres and other stake-holders in planning regional stroke prevention strategies
