#GMVEMSC: FW: Until June 29th- EMS Care Survey from the Ohio Coverdell Stroke Program

Dear EMS Colleagues, 

The Ohio Coverdell Stroke Program, a program within the Ohio Department of Health, is working to assess EMS agencies’ education and quality improvement related to stroke care, as well as the communication between EMS agencies and receiving hospitals. Feedback from your agency would be helpful in order to inform our work. The survey can be accessed at

This survey focuses on three key areas: 
1. Stroke education and training
2. Pre-hospital management of stroke patients
3. Stroke data and quality improvement

Completing this survey will allow our team to determine ways we can assist EMS agencies and hospitals in working together to improve care for stroke patients. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact:

Please work with your staff to complete this survey by June 29, 2018. It should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Thank you in advance!
