Improving the quality of stroke assessment

Project description

GM CLAHRC developed GM-SAT, an evidence based assessment tool that provides everything needed to enable healthcare professionals to undertake a thorough and effective six month post stroke review. The toolkit has helped improve the quality of life for stroke survivors and their carers by identifying the unmet needs of patients and addressing them.

The tool provides a comprehensive and easy to follow guide to carrying out the six month post stroke review. Localities are integrating the tool into their local systems.
