Australian Stroke Alliance
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to address an unmet clinical need and to deliver urgent stroke care for all Australians.
As one of the 30 agencies, the CAA is also an Essential Partner and member of the ASA and brings to the ASA board table the network of emergency ambulance services throughout Australia.
This partnership ensures that ambulance services, as the key provider of pre-hospital care can make a genuine contribution to the development and implementation of world-leading innovation in the early treatment of stroke.
The Australian Stroke Alliance has put together a document that outlines its work, research and exciting future plans. Read this here.
