Stroke

Michigan's efforts to improve outcomes for individuals who suffer a stroke focus on improving treatment and communication across the continuum of stroke care. This includes emergency medical services (EMS), hospitals, and rehabilitation settings.

More information about this work can be found on the website for Michigan's Ongoing Stroke Registry to Accelerate the Improvement of Care (MOSAIC). Surveys and reports for the MOSAIC program can be accessed on the website's Michigan Stroke Surveys, Reports, & Other Documents page.

Among the Michigan Coordinated Chronic Disease and Health Promotion Indicators related to stroke are:

Evaluation

Program evaluation is the systematic collection and analysis of data to examine whether public health activities are achieving their intended outcomes. Evaluation is important, because it helps us improve our programs and spend our resources wisely.

For more information on program evaluation, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Program Performance and Evaluation Office website. Materials specific for evaluation of heart disease and stroke prevention can be found on the CDC Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Evaluation Resources webpage.

Evaluation documents produced from our work can be found below.


Health Impact Statements: State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305)

CDC's 1305 grant opportunity, State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors, and Promote School Health, was a coordinated effort between three MDHHS program areas and the Michigan Department of Education. Health Impact Statements for each of the program areas are available below.
