Understanding patient care and long-term outcomes of stroke and cardiovascular disease is a game-changer

We would like to acknowledge Associate Professor Monique Kilkenny who is a finalist for the Game Changer Award presented by the Australian Cardiovascular Alliance (ACvA) Excellence in Cardiovascular Research Awards.

This award showcases innovative and transformative work that is significant in the way it shifts current thinking.

Associate Professor Monique Kilkenny’s National Stroke Data Linkage Program was chosen because it will generate evidence to understand patient care and long-term outcomes at the general practice level for patients with stroke and cardiovascular disease.

“I am delighted to be a finalist for this award on behalf of the team at Monash (Dr Muideen Olaiya and Dr Joosup Kim). This project was funded by the Stroke Foundation with important new collaborations with Outcome Health (Karina Gardner and A/Prof Chris Pearce) and using data from the Australian Stroke Clinical Register (Data custodian: Professor Dominique Cadilhac),” Professor Kilkenny said.

“Data generated from our research will be instrumental for identifying gaps in the evidence-based management of stroke in general practice and understanding whether these gaps are associated with potentially avoidable recurrent events.”
