Neurology department AZ St-Jan Bruges


An information desk about stroke is installed at the entrance hall of our hospital. Patients, their families and visitors are handed over a flyer with the FAST signs on it. They also receive a participation form to enter our contest. Three questions about stroke facts are asked. The answers can be found on posters at the information desk. Gifts are a health club membership, cookbooks with healthy recipes, sphygmomanometer, pulse meter (for runners),... They can also measure their blood pressure, weigh themselves, measure themselves and calculate BMI. Their risk to have a cardiovascular disease within the next 10 days will be explained with the SCORE risk calculator. Measures that can be taken to prevent cardiovascular disease will also be made clear.
