Secondary prevention outcomes with a support program after transient ischemic attack or mild stroke

Takeaway

  • A prevention support program (PSP) increased achievement of secondary prevention targets (SPT) but did not decrease major vascular event occurrence (VEO) following transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mild stroke.

Why this matters

    Many patients with TIA or stroke do not achieve SPT, and availability of an intervention that reduces VEO could improve outcomes for patients who have had TIA or stroke.
