The CRSN has created this page to list relevant COVID-related resources for our stakeholders. Documents will be uploaded as they become available. Additional resources have been made available to support stroke survivors, families, and caregivers in response to the pandemic. Click here to access support resources for stroke survivors.

 Stroke Guidance Documents
 
 BACKGROUND: To protect staff, facilitate infectious disease evaluations, and conserve PPE, many hospitals have made the decision to admit all COVID-19 positive patients to specialized COVID-19 units. Many of the staff on these units will not have stroke care training. Stroke guidance documents for stroke best practices have been developed to support staff unfamiliar with managing acute ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patients. This information is intended to be “guidance rather than directive” and is not meant to replace clinical judgment.
