The Stroke Foundation collects and evaluates data on the delivery of stroke care using standard indicators based on the best-practice recommendations of the Clinical Guidelines.
This National Stroke Audit is conducted annually but alternates between acute and rehabilitation services on a two-year cycle. View Information specifically about the Methodology of the National Stroke Audit.
The Stroke Foundation has been conducting the National Stroke Audit since 2007. The Audit process involves collection of a large data set measuring aspects of care outlined in the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management, alternating between Acute Services and Rehabilitation Services annually.
Feedback from Audit participants indicates that there is a desire to introduce the ability to do ‘spot audits’ on key aspects of multidisciplinary care (outside of the Audit cycle). Development of the Australian Stroke Data Tool (AuSDaT) means that we can offer clinicians access to these spot audits within the National Stroke Audit at any point in time.
