Scenario and Intervention Modelling in Ireland for Stroke Project

Improving post-stroke survival, and an ageing population, means that the prevalence of stroke and post-stroke cognitive impairment (CI)/dementia in Ireland is projected to increase in coming decades. A rapidly changing evidence-base for successful acute stroke treatments, and historically under-developed rehabilitation services, implies a critical need for further development of services for stroke prevention and management in Ireland. The SIMI-Stroke project’s aim is to evaluate alterative policy options for stroke prevention and management in Ireland, using population-based epidemiological and economic modelling, to identify potentially effective and cost-effective interventions, and inform key strategic planning of services. The ESRI is collaborating on this project which is led by Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and funded by the Health Research Board.
