Project Description

Primary aim is to provide reliable evidence for health care policy makers and service providers to reduce stroke burden in NZ. To achieve this, our programme is structured around four interlinked studies addressing the following aims: (Study 1) determining population-based estimates of stroke and TIA mortality and functional outcomes at 12 months; and analysing 40-year trends in stroke burden, including healthcare use, and economic impact in the Auckland Region; (Study 2) determining the impact of pre-hospital pathways of stroke/TIA on their outcomes over the last 10 years (2011-2021); (Study 3) estimating the national burden of acute stroke, and (Study 4) determining the effectiveness of health and wellness coaching (HWC) in improving lifestyle behaviour to reduce the risk of stroke after a minor stroke or TIA
