Abstract
There is ample evidence from randomized trials that for patients with stroke, stroke unit care is superior to care in general medical or neurological wards. This evidence, which has been adopted by international guidelines has to be implemented into daily stroke care. This consensus document prepared by the Belgian Stroke Council provides a set of minimum criteria to meet international standards for stroke care. It is intended to provide help in the creation of stroke units in centers who do not currently have one and to provide a benchmark for centres already having organised stroke care.
