A retrospective cohort study evaluating the continuity – between hospital and community care – of evidence-based stroke care with anti-hypertensive and lipid-lowering agents. This innovative project aims to identify factors associated with gaps in secondary stroke prevention and to provide input to existing strategies developed to improve the quality of stroke care, which consequently may lead to improved outcomes of persons who experience a stroke episode.
