SITS-WATCH – a global project to improve stroke care

WATCH.pngSITS-WATCH project aims to reduce the delay between arriving at hospital and initiation of thrombolysis (door-to-needle time, DNT) from 65 minutes, which is the median value in SITS, to median below 40 minutes, i.e., for at least half of all patients. For some centers: 10-15% reduction.

This project is global within SITS and will cover all 65 member countries. The conditions are different for the countries, due to stroke care services, infrastructure and economic factors. Therefore, there is a reason to explore the feasibility to improve stroke management considering current local conditions.
