Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2017

The Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2017 updates and supersedes the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010.

The Clinical Guidelines have been updated in accordance with the 2011 NHMRC Standard for clinical practice guidelines and therefore recommendations are based on the best evidence available. 

Review of the Clinical Guidelines used an internationally recognised guideline development approach, known as GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation), and an innovative guideline development and publishing platform, known as MAGICapp (Making Grade the Irresistible Choice).
