Given the complexity of the disease, the variety of ways it can present, and the differences between treatment regimes for best outcomes of different types of stroke, it is essential that all clinical staff involved with stroke have a thorough understanding of its underpinning anatomy, physiology and disease processes.

Secondly, there is an increasing awareness of the usefulness of other forms of knowledge such as patient experience, practical ‘know-how’ and information from the local context on which to base the development of services (Rycroft-Malone et al. 2004).

Although not exhaustive, the following sections provide a brief overview of the some of the most relevant resources.
