NIH awards $40 million in grants to reduce stroke disparities in the US
Date:5/1/2013

cine, University of Puerto Rico, and Hospital HIMA-San Pablo Caguas, also in Puerto Rico. "Our mission is to improve the treatment and prevention of stroke among blacks and Hispanics in Florida and Puerto Rico," said Ralph L. Sacco, M.D., M.S., professor and chair of neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. The investigators will develop a registry of acute stroke patients treated at nearly 140 hospitals throughout Florida and Puerto Rico. The hospitals are already using national guidelines and tracking their performance on key measures of stroke care quality such as the use of the clot-busting drug t-PA within three hours of stroke, and the initiation of other antithrombotic agents and smoking cessation counseling during hospitalization. The researchers hope to gain a better understanding of the underlying factors that contribute to higher stroke risk among racial and ethnic minorities, and to identify opportunities for improvement.
