International Recognition for the Stroke Network of SEO at the World Stroke Congress Oct 2018

The 11th World Stroke Congress took place in Montreal in Oct 2018 bringing together leading international stroke experts.

The Stroke Network of SEO teams were engaged in the delivery of presentations related to Stroke Prevention Clinic core elements, Endovascular Thrombectomy, Acute Stroke Unit care, innovations in rehabilitation, and the evaluation of stroke care in Complex Continuing Care and LTC settings, a true cross-continuum contribution! 

Congratulations on a full year of 24/7 access to Stroke Endovascular Thrombectomy across Southeastern Ontario!

A year ago KHSC expanded access to its Stroke Endovascular Thrombectomy Service  from weekday to 24/7 delivery. This move to round-the-clock service was a big step that required an incredible commitment from many across the region including referring hospitals, paramedic services and the large and growing team of experts within KHSC.  Over the past year, we have learned that we can indeed deliver this complex service successfully with great outcomes for patients across Southeastern Ontario.

Supporting Patient & Family Education across the Region

Working with stroke survivors, families and health care providers, the SNSEO developed a listing of recommended contents for a Stroke Information Package. This package is intended to support survivor and family education as well as community reintegration following a stroke. Ideally, this package would be provided to all stroke survivors early in their hospital stay though it may be useful at any point in the care journey.
