Putting stroke outcomes into context - Assessment of variations in the processes of care

Background: Comparative studies of patient outcomes consistently find that variations cannot be explained by case mix alone, suggesting that differences in the process of care may contribute to variations in outcome. We sought to describe local medical and social services available to patients participating in a multinational study of stroke services and outcomes. Methods: Key informant interviews were conducted with service providers in participating centres.
