Many states have stroke care models that involve EMS in four primary components:
1) Does your state have a defined model for stroke care and treatment?
2) What is the level of knowledge of EMS services of the model / guidelines?
3) How is education on the stroke model communicated to EMS providers in your area?
4) What is the level of participation / compliance of EMS services with the model / guidelines?
5) What challenges is EMS stroke care facing in your area?
6) Do you have any suggestions to improve EMS’ role in stroke care in your area?
