The Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP), which assesses the care provided for patients during and after they receive inpatient care following a stroke, has published its ninth annual report. Based on data from April 2021 to March 2022, the report aims to identify which aspects of stroke care need to be improved with a particular focus on changes in stroke care over the last two years and the ‘roads’ that need to be followed in order to restore the quality of care.
SSNAP measures the process of care against evidence-based quality standards referring to the interventions that any patient may be expected to receive. These standards are laid out in the latest clinical guidelines and include:
- whether patients receive clot busting drugs (thrombolysis).
- interventions for clot retrieval (thrombectomy).
- how quickly they receive a brain scan.
- how much therapy is delivered in hospital and at home.
