Stroke conference targets practice nurses

The UK Stroke Forum is putting on a 3-day meeting to help nurses get up to date with the latest clinical guidance on stroke, and to help shape the future of the stroke care pathway.

Running from 4-6 December in Telford, the UK Stroke Forum Conference, the event provides opportunities for health professionals, including nurses, and researchers to come together so they can share learning, best practice and ideas to improve standards of care and rehabilitation for stroke survivors.

Keynote speakers include Professor Steve Powis, NHS Medical Director NHS England and Co-chair for the National Stroke Plan, and there will also be a nursing and rehabilitation accredited training day and a one-day dedicated training stream designed specifically for primary care.

Professor Dame Caroline Watkins, chair elect of the UK Stroke Forum, said the conference is ‘an essential event for professionals to find out the latest clinical guidelines for stroke, implement practical changes and help shape the future of the stroke care pathway. I’d urge readers interested in attending to register as soon as possible.

‘Many nurses regularly see the devastating impact stroke can have. With the support of colleagues and organisations committed to improving stroke care, the 2018 UK Stroke Forum brings together a united force to help conquer stroke.’
