A pilot retrospective medical record review was conducted with patients who died of stroke aged 18 years and over during 2008 to 2011 within acute care hospitals in Australia (n=10), New Zealand (n=10) and Singapore (n=7). This sample was designed to identify significant issues in the treatment and care of people who die of stroke, and will be used to inform a larger study. Sites chosen represented the key hospital for the treatment of people with stroke for a population of 200,000.
