A patient understanding his or her treatment plan after having a stroke is imperative for their long-term treatment and preventing another stroke from occurring. Hospital systems across the United States are required to provide effective treatment plans and education for all the stroke patients they serve. However, research has shown that a knowledge gap exists and patients do not understand his/her treatment plan correctly. One-on-one education is an effective intervention that can help the patient understand his/her treatment plan that consists of increasing the patient’s knowledge about stroke their specific risk factors for stroke, their BE FAST knowledge (which captures s/s of stroke and calling 911), and the importance of follow up appointments. This project consisted of conducting one-on-one education to stroke patients while they were in the hospital and then conducting a questionnaire at a seven-day post discharge phone call. Participant’s knowledge increased after conducting the one-on-one education. These findings indicated that implementing one-on-one-education is a successful intervention.
