Brief description Urgent treatment of acute stroke in rural Australia is problematic. Telemedicine could improve delivery of acute stroke treatments in rural communities. Currently this is being investigated through the Victorian Stroke Telemedicine (VST) program by providing an acute telestroke service in 16 hospitals located in rural and regional Victoria. This project, known as CAST, forms an important sub-study for the VST program since it provides a full economic evaluation of the program.
