Welcome to Riksstroke – a national quality register for stroke care, primarily aimed at health care staff and decision-makers in health care. We collect, analyze and follow up data on illness and hospital stays. In addition to data from the emergency phase, a questionnaire-based follow-up is also carried out after three months and after 1 year, which provides valuable additional information about stroke patients’ health and functional ability.
