**NEW Smart Tips for Stroke Care - A healthcare providers guide to caring for a person with stroke

“Smart Tips for Stroke Care” was created through a collaborative partnership between the 11 regional Stroke Networks of Ontario, and incorporated significant input from subject matter experts and end-users from across the province. Smart Tips for Stroke Care (2023) was created by members of the Regional Stroke Networks of Ontario. This guide is intended/created for Personal Support Workers (PSW) working in Long Term Care in Ontario. However, anyone interested in stroke care can benefit from using this resource, including PSWs in the community, family members.

The goal of the Smart Tips resource is to highlight common changes due to stroke and strategies for managing these changes. Each Smart Tips topic may be used individually or as part of a series. The Smart Tips can be downloaded or printed freely as a full document or individually according to staff and organizational needs. This material may be shared without permission from the authors, without changes and with source credited. CLICK HERE
