We are seeking volunteer, multi-disciplinary, multi-specialty health professionals and consumer representatives to help with a new guideline on stroke prevention.
This guideline is being produced in association with the International Union of Angiology (IUA). It is focusing on disease of the main brain artery (the carotid artery) with implications for all arterial disease prevention. The aim is to help update the field and overcome procedural biases in existing guidelines.
This project is being performed in steps, and each step expected to last up to 6-12 months.
This project involves systematic reviews of guidelines and studies regarding how to best define and modify arterial disease risk factors (including hypertension, lipids, smoking etc) for primary and secondary prevention.
Consumers, in particular, can assist with one or more steps by helping make the guideline understandable, relevant and accessible.
All work is being performed via email. There is no need for meeting participation. All career stages welcome and variable time contributions can be accommodated.
Opportunities to participate are limited. If interested, please email a summary of why and how you would like to help to A/Prof Anne Abbott: Anne.L.Abbott@gmail.com'
