Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stroke remains primarily a clinical diagnosis, with information obtained from history and examination determining further management. We aimed to measure inter-rater reliability for the clinical assessment of stroke, with emphasis on items of history, timing of symptom onset, and diagnosis of stroke or mimic. We explored reasons for poor reliability.
