Practitioners in the field of health promotion and stroke prevention
are facing numerous pressures--to reach more people, with higher
quality, cost-effective programs that incorporate the latest evidence
and demonstrate positive outcomes.
The Towards Evidence-Informed Practice (TEIP) project aims to address
some of these issues by supporting an enhanced partnership between
local Heart Health Coordinators and District Stroke Coordinators. 
The ultimate goal is the implementation and evaluation of
collaborative, community-based stroke prevention programs based on the
latest available evidence and theories in health promotion.
