Improving the Identification of Women at Increased Risk for Stroke in an Urban Medical Center
Wayne State University
Approved: December 2012
Grant Period: January 2013 – December 2014
The main aim of our intervention is to heighten the awareness of stroke risk in women among primary care providers in an urban medical center. Along with education on which women are at increased risk for stroke, we will provide guideline recommended methods to reduce the number of strokes in women at increased risk.
We intend to target multiple clinical practice sites under the umbrella of the Wayne State University Physician Group (WSUPG). Targeting multiple sites will have a major impact on the awareness of assessment of stroke risk in women, especially African American women.
