The Montana Stroke Initiative is a collaboration between the Montana Department of Public Health, Cardiovascular Health Program, American Stroke Association and physicians, nurses, EMS personnel and hospital administrators throughout the State. Our mission is to develop a state-wide stroke system of care that allows patients access to the best stroke care regardless of where they live in Montana.

This website is intended to serve State-wide protocols and guidelines developed for facilities throughout Montana and Northern Wyoming that are interested in providing evidence-based, best care practice to their stroke victims. This site will also provide stroke education to participating physicians, primary providers, nurses and EMS providers.

Facilities and providers will also be expected to contribute patient data to a state-wide stroke registry. This will allow us to measure and track protocol success and needs served.
