Identifying Unmet Needs 30 Days Following Ischemic Stroke: The Post Stroke Checklist Public
Stroke care often focuses on acute intervention and treatment, but important long-term sequelae are sometimes overlooked and may not be captured in standard outcome measures. The post stroke checklist (PSC) was developed by a Global Delphi Panel comprised of international stroke experts (Global Stroke Community Advisory Panel) with the purpose of identifying unmet needs in stroke patients. The PSC includes 11 items (see figure). The intent is to improve stroke survivor follow-up and ensure that treatable complications are identified and referred for treatment.
