RCPCH – Stroke in Childhood: Clinical guideline

18th July 2017

Stroke in Childhood: Clinical guideline for diagnosis, management and rehabilitation (2017)

Stroke in Childhood 2017 is a nationally developed evidence-based clinical guideline for all UK paediatricians and healthcare professionals involved in the regulation or practice of the care of children and young people who have had or are suspected of having a stroke.

Funded by the Stroke Association, the clinical guideline was prepared by the Royal College of Paediatric and Child Health’s (RCPCH) multi-professional Stroke in Childhood Guideline Development Group (GDG).

The clinical guideline is accompanied by a parent guideline, which aims to ensure that families understand what a stroke is, why they occur, and how children and young people affected by stroke should be treated and cared for.
