- Critically evaluate the existing stroke activation and ET protocols for compliance with new 2018 metrics and guidelines.
- Review DTP times under the existing protocol to assess for potential inefficiencies or gaps in care delivery, specifically addressing differences between processes at JHN compared to ED/Gibbon.
- Make changes to the existing stroke alert protocol to better reflect current guidelines, streamline care, and ultimately improve process metrics (DTP times).
- Establish a system for recursive continuous analysis of AIS patients to identify protocol gaps, inefficiencies and areas for further intervention.
