The Australian Stroke Clinical Registry (AuSCR)
The Australian Stroke Clinical Registry (AuSCR) is a collaborative national effort to monitor, promote and improve the quality of acute stroke care.
The AuSCR is used to collect data on patient admissions for stroke and transient ischaemic attack from participating hospitals across Australia. This data guides hospital quality improvement activities to reduce variations in care and, ultimately, decrease preventable deaths, disability, or recurrent stroke. The aim of the AuSCR is to promote best practice stroke care nationally.
Established in 2009, the AuSCR now has 70 hospitals contributing data, with over 65,000 episodes of care recorded. In addition, follow-up of patients three to six months after their hospital admission and data linkage with the National Death Index collects valuable data about patient outcomes. Students may approach us regarding a their ideas on a project with AuSCR.
