Introduction: Many stroke patients, although initially managed in an acute care setting, are admitted to a designated rehabilitation facility. This facility could be a ward in the same acute hospital as their initial treatment, or a ward in a sub-acute hospital. Where the patient receives treatment that meets the AN-SNAP definition of rehabilitation (refer “Definition of Rehabilitation” box) and the facility providing that treatment is a member of the Australasian Rehabilitation Outcomes Centre (AROC), information on their episode of care is reported to the national rehabilitation database held by AROC.
