Aligning on National Stroke Targets is the first step in a collaborative effort to support hospitals, stroke teams and Australian states and jurisdictions to provide best-practice, time critical stroke care for their patients, to reduce avoidable stroke-related deaths and disability. These national targets will be followed by local, State and National initiatives to facilitate progress towards these goals.
