Post stroke recovery is exactly what the COMprehensive Post-Acute Stroke Services (COMPASS) study, led by Wake Forest Baptist Health, is all about. It compares the health status of stroke patients who receive conventional post-hospitalization treatment to that of patients who receive comprehensive care based on a model developed by a team of physicians, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, health system and human services leaders, and patient and caregiver stakeholders. Over 10,000 patients from across North Carolina have been enrolled in the study. And now, the numerous insights and resources gained during the study by health care providers, stroke survivors, and their caregivers are available to anyone online through the COMPASS.
