The NNeuR started in December 2008 supported by the Ministry of Health (MOH) to gather information about stroke and epilepsy in Malaysia. This patient registry enables us to know the incidence of stroke and epilepsy and evaluate its risk factors and treatment in this country.
This is a multi-center, observational cohort study designed to evaluate the health outcomes of patients with stroke and epilepsy undergoing treatment at participating clinical centers. Patients with acute stroke and epilepsy from participating clinical sites who meet eligibility criteria will be enrolled into the registry. Patient inclusion criterion is deliberately broad and shall include any patient with a confirmed diagnosis of acute stroke and epilepsy.
The database is useful in assisting the MOH, Non-Governmental Organizations, private healthcare providers and industry in term of budget planning and allocation which enable to compare our treatment outcome with the rest of the world and also as a tool in planning stroke awareness and health education program.
