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

Stroke 2017 guidelines

The first clinical guideline on stroke in childhood was published by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in 2004. These guidelines may no longer reflect the best and most up-to-date clinical practice, and as such required urgent updating to ensure utilisation of current evidence.

This 2017 iteration of the clinical guideline delivers an update and scope extension, and provides guidance on the identification, diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of children and young people (aged 29 days to 18 years at time of presentation) with arterial ischaemic stroke (AIS) and haemorrhagic stroke (HS).
