The National Stroke Audit – Rehabilitation Services Report provides evidence of the critical function of rehabilitation in stroke recovery. The report aims to highlight areas where the system for stroke rehabilitation is working well and to report on improvements or changes that may be needed. It is the only audit report of its kind in Australia.
Dr Annie McCluskey from the University of Sydney presents the findings of the Stroke Foundation's audit of rehabilitation services in Australia and lists recommendations for improvement.

Introducing the AuSDaTThe Australian Stroke Data Tool (AuSDaT) has been built to offer hospital clinicians in acute and rehab settings a new single data collection tool for clinical monitoring in stroke care. As part of the rollout, the tool has replaced the existing Stoke Foundation audit tool and is being used by several hundred hospitals (acute and rehabilitation services) to collect Organisational Survey and Clinical Audit data for the National Stroke Audit. Visit the Australian Stroke Coalition website for more information on AuSDaT. See more about on the Australian Stroke Coalition website.
