COMprehensive Post-Acute Stroke Services (COMPASS) Study


Building on partnerships and collaborations to improve post-acute stroke care


The COMPASS Study is a pragmatic, randomized trial to investigate post-acute stroke care models that are aimed at improving patient functional outcomes and reducing hospital re-admissions.

The COMPASS study will evaluate a patient-centered, community-based care model to improve secondary prevention, recovery and access to community resources for stroke survivors and caregivers. COMPASS will encourage and facilitate patient and caregiver self-management of care.

We are leveraging the successes of the NC Stroke Care Collaborative network of hospitals to expand quality improvement to the post-acute care space. In the first phase of the study, sites will be randomized to provide the COMPASS intervention or continue their usual care. In Phase 2, one-year later, the usual-care hospitals will also receive COMPASS, while the other hospitals continue the intervention.
