Acute Stroke Pathway

The Acute Stroke Pathway ensures that stroke patients get the best care possible in the first hours after a stroke occurs. If people with stroke symptoms get the right care very quickly, they can often expect a good recovery.

The Acute Stroke Pathway starts with you! If you notice signs of a stroke in yourself or someone around you, this is what you need to know:

Don’t waste time
The sooner you get treatment after onset of a stroke, the more brain cells can be rescued.

Know the signs of stroke

Visit the Heart and Stroke Foundation for more information about what stroke symptoms look like.

Call 9-1-1 (don’t drive)
Ambulance personnel can get you directly where you need to be and make sure that a Stroke Pathway Team is ready and waiting.
