European Stroke Organisation (ESO)

The European Stroke Organisation (ESO) is a pan-European society of stroke researchers and clinicians, national and regional stroke societies and lay organisations that was founded in December 2007.

The aim of the European Stroke Organisation (ESO) is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by changing the ways that stroke is viewed and treated. This can only be achieved by professional and public education, and by making institutional changes.

The Mission of the ESO

The ESO's major objective is to improve stroke care in Europe by providing medical education to healthcare professionals and the lay public in Europe. By offering best practice approaches, the ESO's goal is to harmonise stroke management in Europe. The ESO focuses on European level projects.

The ESO is dedicated to the following purposes:

1. To promote awareness, management, teaching and research in all aspects of stroke
2. To develop and promote public policies to reduce the number of deaths due to stroke and to improve the care of stroke victims and the quality of life of stroke victims
3. To reduce the burden of stroke throughout Europe
4. To develop and promote professional and public education
5. To develop and promote other appropriate activities such as fundraising and prevention programs
6. To develop, promote, and coordinate european teaching programs through national/regional organisations
