Telestroke is a 24/7 emergency telemedicine application that provides emergency physicians with immediate access to neurologists with expertise in stroke care who can support both the assessment and treatment of patients experiencing acute stroke.

A Telestroke Referring Site Handbook has been developed to provide a concise introduction to the Provincial Telestroke program for new and existing referring sites. The contents and resources in the Toolkit have been pulled from current Telestroke sites, the Ontario Stroke System and the Ontario Telemedicine Network.

This Handbook includes workflows, processes, tools, and resources that can be adapted and integrated within your organization's existing policies and procedures. Using this Handbook, you will be able to provide a standardized, province-wide infrastructure that supports a Telestroke encounter. All comments or suggestions for improvement are welcome.
