Acute stroke treatments are highly effective and very time sensitive (ie. Time is brain).  One barrier to timely treatment is tpa discussion induced delay/refusals. Based on qualitative data from a safety net hospital we think this is due to: 1) low health literacy of the patient population and 2) physician framing of the conversation that may overemphasize the risks. Lesli will be seeking input to build patient and provider guides.
