Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Clinical Tools Library (List Version)

Updated:Mar 16,2018

Clinical Tools for Quality Improvement

Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke is much more than a data registry. It's a comprehensive program for supporting quality stroke care, including a library of tools and resources to help improve processes and maximize effectiveness.

The library includes forms and tools that have proven successful at other hospitals participating in Get With The Guidelines-Stroke. We offer these documents only to give you an idea of other hospitals' solutions. By including the documents on this website, the American Heart Association does not represent that they are complete, accurate or efficacious, or that they follow all of the American Heart Association guidelines for secondary and primary prevention of cardiovascular events or stroke. Hospitals should design their order sets, discharge instructions and other tools based on their own procedures and professional experience.

We value your feedback on the clinical tools library and its content. Please take a moment to provide us with your feedback on how we could make this toolkit better (e.g., additional tools and resources you would want to see available in the future).
