All of them died from stroke, and at the time of their deaths, no medical treatment could have saved them. How times have changed. The profound shift in the approach to treating stroke. Stroke both treatable and preventable today. Some of the exciting new developments that have revolutionised stroke care. The importance of stroke units. The direct and indirect costs of stroke. What could happen over the next 20 years. Reducing the impact of stroke, only with the public's help. Becoming stroke aware. The word of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The "Coordinated Stroke Strategy." The road map for the future of stroke care. At the end of this address, Mr. Ian Scott and Mr. Phil Lind, both stroke survivors, made brief remarks.
