The European Stroke Organisation strongly supports participation of stroke centres in quality improvement programmes in stroke care. The ESO Angels Awards is a quality improvement programme by the ESO that is supported by the Angels Initiative.
With the ESO Angels Awards, quality measures can be captured in either the RES-Q registry, the SITS-Quality Registry (SITS-QR) or in your National Registry if it has been approved by the ESO Angels Steering committee. Your participation in this quality improvement programme will be recognised by ESO. Based on your performance in the various measures your hospital may achieve Gold, Platinum or Diamond status and be acknowledged with a corresponding ESO Angels Award.
The ESO Angels Awards quality improvement programme is complementary to the ESO Certification Platform, the stroke care guidelines developed and published by ESO, and the educational activities coordinated by ESO.
