WSC 2022 | Stroke Action Plan for Europe progress

Valeria Caso, MD, PhD, FESO, Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital, University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy, gives an insight to the recent developments in stroke care through the Stroke Action Plan for Europe (SAP-E). The SAP-E is outlined by the European Stroke Organization (ESO) and is a pan-European project that sets targets for the implementation of evidence-based preventive actions and stroke services until 2030. Goals include reducing the number of strokes in Europe by 10%, treating 90%+ of all stroke patients in a dedicated stroke unit, having national plans for the stroke chain of care, and implementing strategies for population wide risk factor reduction. National coordinators for each of the participating countries are corresponding with their respective governmental bodies to ask them to sign the official SAP-E Declaration. The declaration summarizes the aims of the action plan and by signing it, ministries of health manifest their commitment to the SAP-E. An international meeting will be held next year to discuss progress. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress 2022 in Singapore.
