Stroke data collection
National Stroke Audit
The Stroke Foundation monitors and measures the delivery of best practice stroke care as described in the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management through the National Stroke Audit program. The program is a biennial audit of stroke services in Australia that alternates annually between acute services and rehabilitation services.
Audit information can be found on the InformMe website. InformMe is the Stroke Foundation's dedicated website for health professionals working in stroke care. View Information specifically about the Methodology of the National Stroke Audit.
Introducing the AuSDaT
The 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 now being used by ~120 hospitals to collect Organisational Survey and Clinical Audit data for the National Stroke Audit of Acute Services 2015.
