Abstract: Knowledge about stroke and its management is growing rapidly and stroke systems of care must adapt to deliver evidence-based care. Quality improvement initiatives are essential for translating knowledge from clinical trials and recommendations in guidelines into routine clinical practice. This review focuses on issues central to the measurement of the quality of stroke care, including selection and definition of quality measures, identification of the eligible patient cohorts, optimization of data quality, and considerations for data analysis and interpretation.
