Secondary Stroke Prevention by Uniting Community and Chronic Care Model Teams Early to End Disparities: The SUCCEED Trial (IRB no. 40111)
This study focuses on patients who have had a recent transient ischemic attack (TIA), ischemic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke, and who have received care at Cedars-Sinai. The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether an outpatient care program called SUCCEED reduces the risk of a future stroke among individuals with a recent stroke. Researchers will also measure the cost of conducting such a program.
Patients will be randomly assigned to either a care management and community health worker-led intervention group or a “usual care” group to improve management of stroke risk factors.
Key Inclusion Criteria:
- Patients with onset of ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke or TIA within the past three months
- At least 40 years old
- Systolic blood pressure greater than 120 mm Hg
Key Exclusion Criteria:
- Speaks language other than English, Spanish, Korean, Mandarin, and Cantonese
- Active drug or alcohol use or dependence that would interfere with study requirements
- Serious illness (requiring systemic treatment and/or hospitalization)
