Usability testing the self-management TO prevent stroke tool

Anderson JA, Saleem J, Russell S, Nedo A, Kimmel B, Robinson J, Merchant M. Usability testing the self-management TO prevent stroke tool. [Abstract]. Stroke; A Journal of Cerebral Circulation. 2011 Mar 1; 42(3):e237.


Paper-based clinical practice guidelines are difficult to integrate with clinicians' real time workflow and documentation needs. Decision support tools incorporated into the electronic medical record may enhance implementation of best practices for secondary stroke prevention. The STOP Stroke Tool is a clinical decision support application that prompts clinicians on guidelines for secondary stroke prevention, and provides simultaneously access to patient education materials and self-management plans for stroke risk factors.
