Quick Reference Guide for Primary Care Providers

The Quick Reference Guide for Primary Care Providers was created to support health care providers manage stroke prevention in their clients.

The Southwestern Ontario Stroke Network (SWOSN) Quick Reference Guide is a two-page (double-sided), 8.5 x 11 document that includes medical targets, links to resources, and contact information for the Secondary Stroke Prevention Clinics in the region. It had been retired after the release of the national quick reference guide but was revived upon numerous requests of health professionals in the region.
