David Hargroves, a consultant and stroke physician from East Kent, UK, gives insights into the treatment of acute stroke patients and on the average door-to-needle (DTN) times achieved in his hospital. He further explains the concept of QUICK (QUality Improvement of aCute ischaemic stroKe patient management), a collaborative initiative with Boehringer Ingelheim, which he started in his stroke unit. Aim of this initiative is to reduce the in-hospital delays in stroke patient management procedures, improve patient outcomes and reduce mortality from stroke.
