Stroke, the main cause of functional disability

Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide (438.000 deaths across Europe, representing 8% of total deaths) associated with high health and social care resources and costs. In Europe, stroke costs €60 billion (bn), with healthcare accounting for €27 bn (45%), representing 1,7% of health expenditure, and €5 bn related to social care costs. Productivity losses cost €12 bn, due to early death and lost working days, including €1.3 bn hours of informal care provided to survivors, costing €16 bn. Readmissions after stroke are related to discharge destination and conditions; thus, greater support for transition to home after stroke is needed to reduce unplanned readmissions. Disabilities and stroke recurrence are one of the main problems that need to be addressed in the stroke care chain, as they hamper patient return to normal life. Hence, there is a need for improving efficiency and optimizing processes of care to ensure continuum of care mostly at the post-hospital level
