Abstract

Healthcare for London in collaboration with the Cardiac and Stroke Network and local NHS Trusts in London have introduced hyper acute stroke units (HASUs).

HASU has been defined by Healthcare for London:

• World-class stroke treatment 24-hours a day
• Rapid assessment
• Arrival on a specialist stroke ward within two hours of arrival to the emergency department (ED)
• CT scan within 30 minutes of arrival to the ED
• Thrombolysis if appropriate within 30 minutes of arrival to the ED
• 24/7 monitoring in a high dependency bed
• Multidisciplinary specialist stroke team, including consultants, nurses and therapists.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust opened a HASU on 1st February 2010.

However, there is a lack of information on the nurses’ perspectives on their developing roles in the hyper acute stroke setting and within the multidisciplinary team.

The aim of this study was to explore nurses’ perspectives on their developing roles within the hyper acute stroke setting and their role within the multidisciplinary team.
