Morbidity Prevalence Estimate at six months, following a Stroke: A Cohort Study.

This study set out to quantify the prevalence of morbidity at six months post-stroke, by building on the standard data collected in the post stroke phase for stroke audits. By gathering this information, commissioners of care, planners and third sector organisations can adapt to and answer the needs of a post-stroke population. In the past, the data collected by national audit programmes are concentrated on what can be termed ‘process or process of care’ data. The utility of these data are in the ability to audit the care received by stroke survivors on stroke units against evidenced standards for care, thus ensuring evidence based practice.
