This study aims to identify the prevalence and management of stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation, age, smoking and diet. It will also examine the risk factors for the development of Parkinson’s disease, heart disease and stroke, how these risk factors are managed and the impact of these conditions on quality of life and daily living activities. Further, the project aims to determine the outcomes for patients with stroke, heart disease and Parkinson’s disease, such as self-rated quality of life and health status, prevalence of depression and anxiety, and the prevalence and management of risk factors where relevant. Variability in outcomes according to socioeconomic status, age, gender and risk factors will also be ascertained.
