1.Increase stroke screening in our population of underserved women aged 45 years and older during primary care visits by using a validated screening tool incorporated into the electronic health record (EHR)
2.Increase primary care practitioner management of modifiable stroke risk factors using evidence-based guidelines in appropriate women identified using a validated stroke screening tool
3.Increase awareness of stroke prevention strategies in these women and their primary care practitioners through the use of consumer health information, web-based teaching modules, and other educational programs
