• The WA Health Stroke Education Framework is designed for acute and subacute care stroke clinicians across nursing, medical and allied health.
  • It outlines a set of minimum requirements around knowledge, skills and experience that have been identified as fundamental to delivering quality stroke care.
  • This set of knowledge and skills has been developed in consultation with stroke clinicians as well as reference to clinical literature and existing stroke education resources.
  • It identifies a universal set of knowledge and skill level requirements that is relevant to all clinicians delivering stroke care.


The design of the framework promotes consistency in clinical practices and structured performance development review processes that meet the Australian Council of Health Care Standards (ACHS) National Safety and Quality Health Standards (NSQHS), associated Clinical Care Standards and EQuIP Content and contribute to the National Health Performance Framework (NHPF) reporting.
