Ideally, however, the development or the redesignation of a stroke unit requires considerable planning and support, including amongst other things, specialist resources and training and development for staff. Conceptual clarity about what constitutes a stroke unit is therefore urgently required. Developing Stroke Services 25 Based on a review of stroke unit trials (Langhorne & Pollock 2002), six features that characterise stroke units have been identified, as follows: • • • • • • Comprehensive assessment of medical problems, impairments and disabilities Active physiological management Early mobilisation and the avoidance of bed-rest Early setting of rehabilitation plans involving carers Early assessment and planning of discharge needs Skilled nursing care The term ‘skilled nursing care’ is not further defined and there is little empirical research in the literature identifying exactly what nurses are skilled in.
G. Department of Health 2007; Welsh Assembly Government 2006). Encouragingly, there has been a steady increase in the proportion of hospitals in England that have stroke units from 75% in 2001, to 84% in 2004, to 96% in 2008 (Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party 2008c). To date there is limited evidence to indicate why or how stroke units are effective, which makes it difficult for effective implementation in a local context. There are, for example, no nationally accepted minimum standards for what constitutes a ‘stroke unit’, although there are classifications based on broad types of services.
For example, recommendations about palliative care in the National Clinical Guidelines are underpinned by consensus within the guideline development group, or extrapolated from the cancer literature. Secondly, there is an increasing awareness of the usefulness of other forms of knowledge such as patient experience, practical ‘know-how’ and information from the local context on which to base the development of services (Rycroft-Malone et al. 2004). Whilst the implementation of research demonstrating clinical and economic effectiveness is a key issue for all health and social care professions, nursing has adopted a broad approach to service development.
