LeiSTAR Epidemiology Study

The LeiSTAR study has been designed to analyse routinely collected data to improve an understanding of TIA and stroke in the LLR region and to inform the strategic management strategy for these conditions.

The aims include:

1. To develop knowledge about the evolving epidemiology of stroke and TIA in Leicestershire
2. To improve understanding of the clinical characteristics of patients presenting with TIA or stroke
3. To develop clinical prediction rules that will facilitate provision of high-quality clinical care.
4. To identify avenues for improvement of management of TIA and stroke, by systematic process evaluation.
