Welcome

As part of the eleven regionally-based programs within the Ontario Stroke System, the Toronto Stroke Networks (TSNs) is a collaborative of the North & East GTA Stroke Network (NEGTASN), the South East Toronto Stroke Network (SETSN), and the Toronto West Stroke Network (TWSN).

Through collaboration, education, and innovation, the TSNs work closely with many partners in Toronto to ensure quality stroke care and improve the outcomes and experience of persons with stroke and their families.

10 Million and Counting

Dr. Mike Evans is founder of the Health Design Lab at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, an Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of Toronto, and a staff physician at St. Michael’s Hospital.  He is changing the way we interact with patients and does this by working with filmmakers, illustrators, patients and experts to make content that people like to both use and share.

“23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?” and “Let’s Make our Day Harder” are two examples of powerful videos garnering more than 10 million views.  They are essentially visual lectures that provide non-medical interventions to help patients better understand and learn about the health benefits of exercise.
