The J-ASPECT Study, a nationwide Japanese study was conducted regarding the acute stroke care capacities of professional training institutions and the prevalence of burnout and quality of life amongst board-certified neurosurgeons and neurologists in Japan. We found that significant disparities existed in the fulfillment of the recommended items for comprehensive stroke centers, and a high prevalence of burnout among those professionals who worked for stroke care. The study group also analyzed the risk of in-hospital mortality for 53,170 acute stroke cases using nationwide administrative data based on the Diagnosis Procedure Combination (DPC) payment system.
