Stroke Prevention


It is important to monitor my health and risk factors to prevent another stroke from happening. If the doctors think that
I have had a stroke, I may be referred to a Stroke Prevention Clinic.

What will happen?

  • Review the type of stroke I had.
  • Review my test results, risk factors, medications.
  • Undergo a neurological exam. Discuss whether more tests are needed.
  • Develop a plan for how I can prevent another stroke.
  • Discuss the plan to follow up with my family doctor and/or another specialist

Who will I see

  • Neurologist
  • Nurse Practitioner or Clinical Nurse Specialist
  • Other health care professionals depending on my needs (for example, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, registered dietitian).
