Celebrating our Achievements

In this report from the Canadian Stroke Network we are Celebrating our Achievements. Our term as one of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) ended in March, 2013, and we began the concluding phase of the CSN with clear goals for completing programs and transitioning projects to partners. As this will be the final report we are taking this special opportunity to look back on our progress, not only over the course of this past year, but over 15 outstanding years in Our Story 1999 – 2014.

Reflection on Accomplishments – Promise for the Future

At the end of fiscal year 2012, the Network “sunsetted” as one of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE), reaching the end of its 14-year lifespan. Now, thanks to the support of the NCE Program and CSN partners, the Network enters a new and final phase during which longstanding projects will be transitioned to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and other partners. In this Annual Report, we reflect on the achievements of the Canadian Stroke Network and look ahead to the promise for the future.

Making a Difference

The CSN is making a difference – a difference to stroke researchers, stroke patients, the health care system, and Canada. In this Annual Report, we profile specific CSN success stories. These stories are only a sampling of the many achievements of the CSN to date. They provide a picture of a mature Network with a clear vision – and with the collaborations and partnerships to make this vision a reality. Our vision is that in the next ten years, Canada’s strategy for research-driven improvements in stroke prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and re-engagement will decrease the burden of stroke and serve as a model for other chronic diseases.

Innovation. People. Progress.

Over the past year, the CSN has renewed its commitment to reducing the effects of stroke on Canadian society. In the autumn of 2002, an external panel reviewed the progress of the CSN, recommended approval of its mandate, and provided positive feedback. The panel encouraged the CSN to maintain its direction in the years ahead. The CSN, through a strategic planning exercise, recognized the need to focus its efforts on fewer, yet higher-impact projects and to make a concerted effort in knowledge translation – moving the latest research to the bedside.

In so many ways, this year has been a turning point for the Canadian Stroke Network (CSN). The Network has put in place a competitive Canadian platform for stroke research, training, knowledge transfer, and public sector and industrial partnerships. In particular, the CSN has matured into an effective research organization, developed multifaceted programs in training, put in place broad partnerships with other organizations, established leadership for its knowledge translation program and given stroke the recognition it deserves within the scientific community.
