Below is one of our projects around improving diagnostic excellence.
Improving Care to Reduce Stroke Misdiagnosis
Project dates: Sept. 2014 - Aug. 2019
Rapid access to treatment reduces brain injury, prevents complications, avoids major stroke after minor stroke and improves patient outcomes. Currently, a lack of prompt treatment leads to preventable harms because patients suffer major strokes after undiagnosed minor strokes. Our target is to cut harms from missed strokes in half within five years. Funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
