Abstract

This article reports the development of an audit form for assessing the quality of stroke care from medical records. A consensus conference to define standards was followed by testing of pilot versions of the audit form. Then formal assessment of inter-rater reliability was carried out in four centres using 76 medical records, each assessed by two of eight auditors. Inter-rater reliability was acceptable, especially when medically qualified auditors were used.
