“The 2011 Stroke Evaluation Report provides a comprehensive review of stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) across the care continuum, including stroke prevention, emergency department care, acute inpatient care, inpatient rehabilitation and home care services, from 2003/04 to 2009/10. This information is used to assess the progress of the Ontario Stroke System (OSS) and identify gaps and opportunities for improvement.”
