A study of 774 patients in eastern North Carolina was undertaken to determine the effects of a coordinated program of care and follow-up on recovery from stroke. The program was designed to coordinate and improve in-hospital stroke care and rehabilitation, to provide for education and training of the family for post-hospital care, and to coordinate and facilitate continued access to services after discharge.
