Stroke Prevention & Holistic Management

There are over 1.1 million stroke survivors in the UK. More than half of these people have a disability and need support. As the leading UK wide stroke charity, we understand the needs, challenges and aspirations of people affected by stroke.

Course outline To fully understand the complex nature of stroke we have developed a three day programme of 15 modules that cover the stroke pathway. This training course covers the last 5 of 15 modules, and can be undertaken without completing other courses

11. Stroke prevention

Many strokes could be prevented by understanding the risk factors that could cause a stroke. This module helps to understand primary and secondary prevention and the lifestyle interventions that could prevent a stroke.

12. Stroke and end of life care

One in five people die after a stroke. There is a need to understand how to support end of life care, individual needs and choices. Also to have the confidence to deal with the difficult situations.

13. Advocacy skiils

This module looks at how to support survivors to express their own views and decisions when they have communication and/or cognitive difficulties. And when to recognise when someone needs support to advocate for them.

14. Holistic assessment

This module gives an understanding of the holistic mind-set that is needed to support a stroke survivor. It aims to create an awareness that no two people are the same and to ensure that the survivor and their family get the support they need.

15. Goal setting

Individual goals give survivors an aim to work towards. Knowing how to set realistic, achievable and person centred goals can aid recovery and provide a sense of achievement.

Who should take this course?

This course is open to all who work with stroke survivors, including acute nurses, care home & domiciliary carers etc
