The PRECIOUS project will examine the consequences of treating complications of stroke such as infections or fever or swallowing problems, all of which commonly occur in elderly patients. Failing to treat these complications often leads to a worse outcome overall.
The second day of ESOC highlighted the value of collaborations between professional societies and patient representatives for the advancement of stroke care. It saw the launch of the Stroke Action for Europe (2018-2030), a major collaborative initiative between the principal professional and patient organisations setting ambitious targets for stroke care over the next decade.
