  1. Q1 quartile 1, Q3 quartile 3
  2. *Overall context grouping was determined using exploratory cluster analysis to categorize units into two clusters based on responses to the Alberta Context Tool and excludes sites with < 8 responses (N = 5)
  3. Includes only patients with ischemic stroke
  4. #Includes only patients discharged directly to the community from acute care
