We provide provincial leadership and planning for the Ontario Stroke System by measuring performance, partnering to achieve best practices, and creating innovations for stroke prevention, care, recovery and reintegration.
As of April 1, 2016, the Ontario Stroke Network (OSN) and Cardiac Care Network of Ontario (CCN) have come together as a single entity to ensure a comprehensive and integrated approach to cardiac, vascular and stroke care in Ontario.
Sharon Collins knew something wasn't right when she heard a thump. “It happened right out of the blue. There was no warning,” she said Friday afternoon from her North Bay home. Collins' husband, Bob, had just got up, was getting dressed and heading to Tim Hortons for coffee. “I was still in bed and heard this thump,” Collins recalls.
The Ontario Stroke Network is pleased to announce the release of the Community Stroke Rehabilitation Models in Ontario resource. This project was undertaken to amalgamate the knowledge and lessons learned from the development, implementation, and successes of existing and emerging programs in an attempt to inform and guide development of future models.
