The following reports can be used to help identify patients that may have a Stroke/TIA misdiagnosis or have been undiagnosed.
The reports in the table below are found in the folder CDRC Quality > Neurology.
|? Stroke TIA 2.1 Casefinding – Potential Stroke Indicator but no QoF Code||Patients with codes which might indicate stroke/TIA such as ‘stroke annual review’ or ‘amaurosis fugax’ There are two separate reports that subdivide admin and clinical codes||Check for uncoded stroke/TIA and/or consider removing any erroneous historic codes.|
|? Stroke TIA 2.2 Casefinding – Vascular dementia codes without H/O stroke/TIA||Many patients with vascular dementia have had cerebral infarcts||Review hospital letters and scan results to look for evidence of past cerebral infarction|
|? Stroke TIA 2.3 Casefinding – Unclassified stroke type #||Patients with code for stroke which isn’t further classified as a haemorrhagic or ischaemic stroke||Review hospital letters and scan results to look for evidence of stroke type. Replace generic stroke code with specific code|
|? Stroke TIA 2.31 Casefinding – Non-classified stroke on antiplatelets or anticoagulant||Patient as in 2.3 but already taking antiplatelets or anticoagulants so more likely to have had ischaemic stroke||As above.|
