Australian stroke survey and carer survey

Have you had a stroke? Are you a carer of someone who has had a stroke?

The National Stroke Foundation is conducting a national survey of stroke survivors and carers of stroke survivors. We need your help to find out what stroke support or services are currently needed in Australia. This information will help to inform strategy and advocacy work of the National Stroke Foundation.

Please click here to download a patient information sheet for you and your carer to read, so that you can decide if one or both of you wish to complete the survey. It contains detailed information about the project and clearly explains all of the processes involved.

To participate please click here and complete the online survey or call 1800 STROKE (1800 787 653) to complete the survey over the telephone

If you prefer to be contacted by post please email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it with your postal address to receive a survey in the mail.


Acute Services Clinical Audit Report

The National Stroke Audit Acute Services Clinical Audit Report 2011 provides an overview of the quality of acute stroke care in Australia using data from the Acute Services Clinical Audit.  It forms the second part of the National Stroke Audit 2011 and provides a measure of adherence to important aspects of care recommended in the Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010.

In 2011, a total of 3,548 patient medical records were audited by clinicians from 108 hospitals across Australia.  These hospitals provided care for the majority of stroke cases (88%) reported to be admitted by the 188 hospitals participating in the National Stroke Audit 2011.

The treatment of stroke patients remains inadequate, with processes known to save lives from death and disability not used in enough cases.
