More than 795,000 strokes occur each year in the US, either new or recurrent, and cause significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 1 of every 20 deaths is from stroke, making it the fourth leading cause of death in this country, after heart attack, cancer, respiratory disease, and injuries.

Stroke is preventable on many levels, both medical and lifestyle. Increased
knowledge and availability of preventive therapies along with control of
cardiovascular (CV) risk factors has led to a steady decline in the incidence of
stroke along with corresponding mortality declines of nearly 34% from 2003 to
2013. Although control of CV risk factors, especially hypertension, has lowered
incidence of stroke, these reports note that the continued need for greater primary prevention efforts to reduce the lifetime risk, severity, and 30-day mortality following stroke. Improvements in acute stroke treatments, especially early recognition and treatment with tissue plasminogen activator, also have contributed to the declines. Given the significant morbidity and mortality associated with acute strokes, education aimed at improving the knowledge and competence of practitioners to assess, diagnose, and treat this disorder in a
timely manner has the potential to substantially improve outcomes in this large patient population.
