Best Practices and
Pillar Recommendations

The APSS Pillar Committees are made up of healthcare professionals and community members with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise related to stroke care.


  • Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
  • Emergency Services and Acute Care
  • Rehabilitation and Reintegration
  • Evaluation

These committees have developed recommended guidelines for provincial 'Standards of Care' for the purpose of improving stroke functional and quality of life outcomes in Alberta. These recommended evidence based standards of care will be instrumental in setting the goals and directions of stroke services in all Health Regions of Alberta.

This section highlights the work of these committees.
