India's First Comprehensive Stroke Plan with a Stroke Support Group
Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute, India's newest and most advanced tertiary care facility sets yet another benchmark by launching India's first Comprehensive Stroke Plan with a Stroke Support Group for – Stroke and Paralysis Patients – in its endeavour to provide a complete and holistic quality healthcare to all.
Dr Hastak considered starting the support group mainly for two reasons, "Doctors are good speakers, but the patient needs have to be heard and responded to in a broad way. Their physical ailments as well as the psychological impacts have to be addressed, for better treatment." He explains, 90% of stroke patients come too late for treatment, "We wanted to create awareness amongst patients for prevention."
