Meet the ESOC2017 Local Committee: The Stroke Society of the Czech Republic

Dear colleagues, friends, members of our stroke community,

Meet the ESOC 2017 Local Committee, which consists mainly of members of the Czech Stroke Society Board. We are glad to share our achievements with you!

Meet us – the Czech Stroke Society

We provide stroke treatment guidelines to the healthcare professionals. We educate lawmakers, policymakers and the public as we advocate for changes to protect our communities from the burden of stroke.                                                  m

We contributed to the development of stroke network:13 Comprehensive stroke centers and 32 Primary stroke centers aiming to provide thrombolysis and thrombectomy services 24/7 to any candidate in our country.                       M

We measure our stroke care quality and our performance. We are the largest contributor to SITS registry per population.                                                                                                                                                                          M

3.800 thrombolysis and 866 mechanical thrombectomies per year (2015), which equals 19,5%, respectively 4,4% population -based thrombolytic and thrombectomy rate of all ischemic strokes.                                                                   M

Long tradition in stroke education. 44 -years tradition of Czech and Slovak Stroke Congresses, 24 -years tradition of organizing cerebrovascular seminars. Countless ultrasound courses and recently simulation training.                                .

For 10 years we have conducted a public campaign called “30 days for stroke prevention and treatment”. We have developed a comprehensive school educational program, which teaches children about stroke. We support ESO activities

Our members have participated in ESO Executive Committee, Stroke Unit Committee and International Liaison Committee. We help ESO to develop and to run an ESO‐EAST Project, which aims at improving stroke care in Eastern Europe.
