View the Program for the 2017 Canadian Stroke Congress.

The Canadian stroke community recognizes the Congress Scientific Program as an important educational forum for Canadian stroke professionals. The program delivers high-quality science and education through plenary sessions, lively debates, clinical trial updates, poster and moderated poster presentations, simultaneous oral sessions, interactive workshops, public forums, and more.

The purpose of the Canadian Stroke Congress is to increase capacity for stroke care in Canada by providing a forum for showcasing new innovations, exchanging ideas, building collaborations, and sharing advances in best practices among an interprofessional group of stroke care providers in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery.

Objectives: The Canadian Stroke Congress will be a catalyst for:

  • Sharing current evidence-based best practices in care across the full stroke continuum
  • Networking opportunities for interprofessional individuals and groups working in stroke research, clinical care, and system planning and improvement
  • Profiling innovative research and highlighting Canadian achievements and contributions to stroke diagnosis, care, and recovery
  • Raising the bar on stroke standards of care by providing implementation knowledge and skills to be incorporated into daily practice working in stroke care
