Resources Section & Organization

On the main page of the resources section, you will find links to common evidence based resource sites for stroke providers as well as common stroke sites intended for the public including your patients.

VCOP members currently have access to a wide array of resources housed on the VCOP website to support the promotion of stroke care best practices. To optimize user experience in the resources section, we have organized the resources to reflect the parts of the care continuum. Resources are organized into the following 5 continuum-based groups:

  • Secondary Prevention
  • Hyperacute Care
  • Acute Care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Community

Within each of these care continuum based categories, resources are further organized into the following sections:

  • Best Practice Guidelines
  • Best Practice Implementation Resources
  • Clinician Resources
  • Education and Knowledge Translation
  • Patient and Resources
  • Screening Tools and Assessment

If you have a resource you would like to add to our repository, please send it to us using “submit a resource icon”:

Profile Changes

Email Notifications Settings

In this section of the VCoP, you can also change your avatar and your group preferences.


Private Messaging

While you can always post a question or comment for everyone to view on the VCoP, you can also message members privately.

Click on the Membership Directory located in the blue bar at the top of your home page.

Enter the name of the member you are looking for or search by other fields such as discipline or organization. Once you find the member you are looking for, their information will appear as a member card icon.

On the right side of this member card, you will see an envelope icon. Click on this to open a text box for composing your message. Sending this message will alert the member by email that they have a message waiting for them on the VCoP.

Explore the member directory to find members with similar interests and to identify other members you can learn with and learn from on this virtual platform.
