Treatment programs

The Stroke Foundation develops Clinical Guidelines for stroke treatment, audits adherence to these guidelines and provides education and resources to health professionals.

We also provide grants for stroke research, and we collaborate with federal and state governments and other organisations to inform health policy, and to develop services and programs for stroke prevention, care and recovery.

Most of our programs can be found on our dedicated website for health professionals, InformMe.


Its resources include:


Our guidelines provide recommendations for best-practice stroke care, based on the latest research. They are:

Also available are the National stroke services frameworks, which support the Clinical Guidelines by guiding service planning, monitoring and improvement of appropriate acute and rehabilitation stroke services.

Stroke data

The Stroke Foundation monitors and measures stroke care against the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management through the National Stroke Audit program. The program alternates annually between the Acute services audit and the Rehabilitation services audit.

Audit data is collected using the Australian Stroke Data Tool (AuSDaT).

Professional development and quality improvement

Health professionals working in stroke care, including those currently studying, can register on InformMe to complete over two dozen professional development modules and track their learning.

Registered users can also access audit data for their site and develop quality improvement plans to lift their site’s performance. They can find resources and tools shared by other members, and ask questions of the InformMe community.
