Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Stroke patients cared for in stroke units have better outcomes than patients treated in general wards, however, the processes of stroke care that are responsible for the observed improvements in outcomes have not been identified. OBJECTIVES: The objective was to identify processes of care received by patients with acute ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) that are independently associated with outcomes, adjusting for both patient characteristics and stroke care quality.
