Our results show that long-lasting efforts in stroke care quality
improvement on a national level have led to equally good
level of stroke care in stroke-ready hospitals in Estonia.

stakeholders to continuous monitoring and measuring quality
of care aiming at reduction of the implementation gap between
evidence-based standards of care and current clinical practice
cannot be overestimated. It is vital that all parties, hospitals,
governmental authorities, and nongovernmental organizations
participate actively in this process.

During the last 15 years the availability of revascularization
therapies for ischemic stroke has increased and according
to the current analysis as much as 33% from all hospitalized
ischemic strokes in Estonia receiving the treatment. This is
confirmed also by a recent survey from European countries
were the rate of IVT per million population in Estonia was
the highest in Europe.3
The aim is to treat at least 90% of patients in stroke units/
centers. According to the quality indicators of stroke care
and data from RES-Q, this target is quite close. It has been
