What does it show?
SSNAP public report provides national picture of stroke care for latest quarter, including maps, graphs, clinical commentary and context.
This is a public report on the clinical component (process of care) of the national stroke audit SSNAP. It covers many processes of care across the entire inpatient stay including comparisons with most recent reporting periods. The report findings enable the processes of stroke services at national level to be compared with national standards outlined in the fifth edition of the National Clinical Guideline for Stroke (2016) published by the Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party, the NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) Clinical Guidelines, the National Stroke Strategy 2007 and the NICE Quality Standards for Stroke (2016).
How can you use it?
These are national results (out of all patients submitted to the audit in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Islands). In this report national results are presented as percentages, medians and interquartile ranges (IQR). The median is the middle point of the data; 50% of patients’ results lie on either side. The interquartile range is the middle half of values; the bottom 25% of patients’ results are below this range and the top 25% of patients’ results are above this range. Unless otherwise stated in the report, 100% is the optimal performance and the higher the percentage, the higher the quality of care. For timings, the shorter the median time to intervention the better the care.
The aim of this report is:
- To publish national and team level results for the entire inpatient stroke care pathway in the public domain.
- To allow comparisons to be made between the latest results and the previous three reporting periods.
- To describe the methods for calculating the pre-existing or upcoming national measures for stroke in England: the CCG Outcomes Indicator Set; and NICE Quality Standard for Stroke measures.
