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.
