The Canadian Stroke Best Practice Guidelines are looking for people to join our Community Consultation and Review Panels (CCRP)! 

The CCRP is an advisory group of people with lived experience and caregivers who help to ensure that our stroke guidelines are grounded in real life experiences and address your needs and preferences. This is done by sharing feedback and insights based on your lived experiences, discussing draft recommendations, and designing resources.

If you have experience with Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI and or vascular dementia) or with Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) and would like to get involved, please click below to learn more!
