Aims/Description: 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke annually and it is the UKs third leading cause of death and disability. Stroke care and management has changed substantially in recent years and recent standards set out by government highlight the need to fully understand the management of this condition. This unit, facilitated by clinical specialists, provides practitioners with an opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the multi-disciplinary approach to care and management of stroke. It is of benefit to professionals who want to extend their knowledge, confidence and skills in this field of health care.
