Decreasing time interval between onset of symptom and emergency admission is key in the treatment of stroke and it is depending on patients and their family knowledge about stroke symptoms and how and where must take patients. Studies suggest that long-term training is needed to achieve the desired results. Previous studies have shown that knowledge of stroke among patients and society is weak. To increase public awareness of stroke, broader public education is needed.
