Cadilhac, DA and Thrift, AG and Kim, J and Olaiya, MT and Nelson, MR and Werner, M and Kilkenny, MF, Long-term risk factor management, International Journal of Stroke, 2-4 September, 2015, Melbourne, Australia, pp. 44. ISSN 1747-4930 (2015) [Conference Extract]


Synopsis: There are many recommended pharmacotherapies and lifestyle changes that are used to manage risk factors and, in turn, reduce the risk of recurrent stroke. Although these therapies and lifestyle changes are often initiated shortly after stroke, once patients are at home there are challenges when sustaining the use of these therapies and lifestyle changes over the longer term. The aim of this educational workshop is to discuss current opportunities to manage the prevention of recurrent stroke in the community, ensure improved communication with general practitioners and support greater awareness of the risk of stroke. Examples of effective interdisciplinary models of care and the importance of effective discharge care planning and patient self-management will be covered.
