Cardiovascular Health and Stroke
Strategic Clinical Network

The Cardiovascular Health and Stroke Strategic Clinical Network (SCN) aims to improve the prevention, treatment and management of vascular disease, bringing together programs and services that care for cardiac and stroke patients and their caregivers.

We are a province-wide team of health care professionals, researchers, community leaders, patients and policy makers, which aims to reshape heart and stroke care in Alberta.

Featured Projects and Programs 

To assist patients who are having a certain type of heart attack, we’ve developed a standardized provincial STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction) Reperfusion Orders set and Rural Transfer Guidelines for use in all emergency departments. By using this, health professionals and physicians will be able to make better and quicker decisions for patients having this type of heart attack. You can access these orders through the Provincial Forms site using form number CH-0454.

If you are a health professional, you can learn about this order set by viewing a recording of a recent education session. If you’re  a physician, you may receive continuing medical education credits.
