Within SANO, we want to investigate several scientific questions to further improve the care of stroke patients. These questions all apply to the first year after occurrence of the primary stroke and are as follows:
- Does a post-stroke care program decrease the rate of further strokes, myocardial infarctions and early death of patients?
- Does the post-stroke care program increase the rate of guideline-adherent adjusted risk factors?
- Does the post-stroke care program decrease the rate of hospital admissions and the risk for complications such as falls?
- Does the post-stroke care program lead to an increase of quality of life?
