The risk of stroke is high in the general population, and strokes place a heavy financial and personal burden on patients and their caregivers. The incidence of stroke in the United States is expected to increase over the next several decades as the population ages, making primary and secondary stroke prevention more critical. Primary care physicians can effect important improvements in the management of patients with strokes by implementing comprehensive treatment plans that address multiple risk factors and maximize the likelihood of effective patient lifestyle change.
