MetadataShow full item record
Equity of access is particularly concerning for minor stroke Medical advances, such as stroke units, improved primary and secondary stroke prevention, and hyperacute treatments have revolutionised acute stroke management.1 The lessening of stroke severity as a result of such ground-breaking initiatives has, however, led to a larger proportion of individuals returning to community living following minor strokes2 (ie, with minimal motor deficits or no obvious sensory abnormality). In this article, we review current literature to identify the potential difficulties experienced following a minor stroke.
