Rising to the Challenge

The Fourth SSNAP Annual Report

Welcome to the 4th SSNAP Annual Report for 2016/2017 “Rising to the Challenge”

SSNAP’s fourth annual report titled “Rising to the Challenge” highlights the improvements made in stroke care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland over the past four years.  Using real world quality improvement (QI) case studies, this report outlines the different approaches taken by local teams to improve their stroke services across the patient pathway; what was the challenge faced? What was the solution? What impact did the QI project have on care processes? The report also offers practical tips and recommendations on how other clinical teams could adapt similar QI approaches to improve the care provided to their patients in the future.
