Canadian Stroke Prevention Intervention Network (C-SPIN)

The Canadian Stroke Prevention Intervention Network (C-SPIN) will develop actionable strategies that will make Canada a global leader in clinical stroke research; ensure sustainability of these efforts through strategies to recruit, train, support, and retain clinical scientists; and, in collaboration with other networks, government, and stakeholder groups, implement strategies to reduce the incidence of embolic stroke in Canada by 10% within ten years. C-SPIN brings together a nation-wide multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, neurologists, cardiac surgeons, emergency room physicians, family practitioners, pharmacists, statisticians, methodologists, knowledge translation (KT) experts, and population scientists to pursue a common goal of a major reduction in stroke by means of shared expertise, resources, and harmonized research efforts. C-SPIN will also support the recruitment and retention of the next generation of Canadian clinical researchers in this field. C-SPIN will answer challenging questions that will revolutionize our understanding of AF and stroke, improve healthcare strategies, and reduce the rate of stroke among Canadians.
