Lancet Neurology Commission on Stroke

Lancet Neurology Commission on Stroke in Low- and Middle-Income countries

NISAN is currently hosting an online survey which is being conducted for a Lancet Neurology Commission on Stroke in Low- and Middle-Income countries. This survey is organised by the World Stroke Organization and the World Health Organization.

The idea of the survey is to help health professionals and Ministries of Health in various countries around the world to understand their current capacity for delivering key elements of stroke care to the population they serve. Based on the information they provide, we will be able to determine the level of stroke services they have in their region/country (categorised as minimum, essential, advanced) and potentially help identify areas of opportunities and improvements.

If you are a health professional and would like to take part please in the survey, contact the Project Manager, Rohit Bhattacharjee rbhattac@aut.ac.nz.

Taking part in the survey will give participants an opportunity to provide input in to our publication, which we anticipate submitting to the Lancet Neurology. If you would like to be considered for co-authorship of this publication, please make sure you enter your name and email address on the first page of the survey, so that you can be given the opportunity to provide critical feedback to this publication.

Only aggregated regional or country level data will be published or shared. Where low survey returns would risk identification of individual services or providers, data will be presented in ways that secure anonymity. Personal data will be retained by the World Stroke Organization (WSO) to enable follow up with implementing agencies. However, all personal data will be removed from survey returns prior to analysis and publication. WSO will not share your personal data with other organisations.

For any questions regarding this survey, please contact the Project Manager, Rohit Bhattacharjee rbhattac@aut.ac.nz.
