About this presentation:
Heart & Stroke has released its 2019 Report called (Dis)connected: How unseen links are putting us at risk. The Report, for the first time, examines the complex connections that link heart conditions, stroke and vascular cognitive impairment. By analyzing available data and published studies, as well as interviews with patients and families and consumer polling, we have found many strong associations between these conditions, the challenges faced by and impact on the people experiencing them, and how the health system supports them through their journeys.

Moderators:
Dr. Patrice Lindsay, Director of Systems Change and Stroke Program, Heart & Stroke
Dr. Cindy Yip, Director Data, Knowledge Management and Heart Program, Heart & Stroke

Intended Audience:
Healthcare providers caring for patients with heart conditions, stroke and vascular cognitive impairment across all settings (acute, rehabilitation, prevention, community), system leaders and funders involved in planning and service delivery, Heart & Stroke staff, students from across health-related disciplines, and researchers.

The information is intended for use by healthcare professionals for reference and education only and is not intended to be a substitute for a physician’s advice, diagnosis or treatment. You should consult your physician for personal health matters.

    Very interesting, thank you! Heart failure and often strokes runs in both sides of my family tree. Knowledge and advocating for yourself is power!
