National Stroke Services Frameworks & Audits

Stroke Services Frameworks

The Acute and Rehabilitation Stroke Services Frameworks outline the principles, essential elements, models of care and staffing recommendations for stroke services. They guide where stroke services should be developed, and the monitoring of quality of stroke care.

The Frameworks complement clinical advice in the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management, and the organisational survey in the National Stroke Audit reports against elements in the Frameworks.

Audit 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 information can be found on InformMe, the Stroke Foundation's dedicated website for health professionals working in stroke care. Audit data is collected using the Australian Stroke Data Tool (AuSDaT).
