The Stroke Core Competencies (SCC) are an online framework consisting of a core set of stroke competencies for six disciplines – Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Social Work, and Recreation Therapy. The SCC was created to support health care professionals who may be working in stroke care to build fundamental stroke knowledge. Each competency contains a number of learning objectives, recommended learning resources/knowledge translation tools and suggested evaluation methods. Ultimately, this framework aims to provide health care professionals working in stroke with a clear, comprehensive way to achieve the core competencies needed for evidence based stroke care. The framework supports a baseline level of competency province-wide, and encourages stroke specific professional growth.
