Post-Stroke Checklist (PSC)

This Post-Stroke Checklist (PSC) has been developed to help healthcare professionals identify post-stroke problems amenable to treatment and/or referral.

The PSC is a brief and easy-to-use tool, intended for completion with the patient and the help of a caregiver, if necessary. PSC administration provides a standardised approach for the identification of long-term problems in stroke survivors and facilitates appropriate referral for treatment.
