This morning, as part of preparing for tomorrow's stroke clinical pathway subcommittee meeting, I updated my inventory of patient/client and family education tools and resources on cardiovascular health. Here is Part 1 (original PEN and PEN-recommended resources) of the inventory. I'm going to continue working on it over the next day-and-a-half.
