About the course

The National Service Framework for Older People and the Royal College of Physicians guidelines for stroke services both stress the importance of providing long-term, lifelong services for people living with stroke. These services need to support people to re-engage with life again after stroke and then to be a resource to sustain people as life, circumstances and experiences change. Many services are aware of the short term nature of much provision and would like to offer greater access to cost-effective, appropriate long term resources and services.

This conference will provide an opportunity to hear from service providers in the NHS, Social Services and the voluntary sector who are developing and providing long term services, and to learn about recent evidence for the effectiveness of these kinds of services.

Who is the course for?

People involved in developing and delivering stroke services in the NHS, Social Services and the voluntary sector. Stroke teams including stroke service coordinators, Patient Advice and Liaison Services (PALs representatives), GPs, consultants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, counsellors, psychologists, nursing staff.

What will you get from attending the course?

  • Ideas for enabling access to cost-effective long term services
  • Ideas for making the most of existing community-based resources for people living with stroke
  • Inspiration to maintain and increase the momentum for developing services in your locality
