“Stroke is the third-largest killer of Canadian adults and the primary cause of physical disabilities. With the growing number of patients surviving stroke plus the increasing number of strokes projected among the aging population, the demand for stroke services is on the rise. Through collaborating with our partners across the stroke system of care, the Champlain Regional Stroke Network supports the coordination of stroke care in the region in alignment with the provision of stroke care based on best practices and evidence."
