People with stroke or transient ischemic attack are at increased risk of future stroke and other cardiovascular events. Stroke services need to be configured to maximize the adoption of evidence-based strategies for secondary stroke prevention. This review assessed the effects of stroke service interventions for implementing secondary stroke prevention strategies on modifiable risk factor control. These included systolic and diastolic blood pressure, body mass index, HbA1c, lipid profile, medication adherence, and cardiovascular events.
