The Stroke Core Competency Framework (SCCF) is intended to provide healthcare providers with an accessible, comprehensive self-assessment tool that will help identify specific learning objectives to support stroke best practice implementation. The SCCF can be used by both new and experienced healthcare providers working across the continuum of stroke care. It was revised in 2023.

The Framework Supports:

  • Orientation of new staff
  • Ongoing professional development
  • Stroke-specific performance appraisals
  • Individual or group learning opportunities
  • Learning gap analysis
  • Guidance for annual education plans
  • Accreditation processes (i.e. Accreditation Canada’s Stroke Distinction)
