The third day of ESOC featured new research which identified how to improve stroke care worldwide – from simple measures in low to middle-income countries, through to refinement of advanced techniques for acute and preventative stroke treatments.
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.
