Stroke Care – practical approaches to supporting a person post-stroke

Carers invariably find themselves involved in stroke care. This care is all about re-ablement, it is essential that carers fully understand stroke and all of its potential effects. Understanding stroke allows the carer to engage with the person in empowering and supportive ways.

Stroke – this course includes a series of lectures, videos and reflective opportunities.

The course will focus on the provision of holistic care. It is an engaging course and you will feel like you are going to classroom every-time you login. Our course includes Lectures, videos and you will have access to lots of downloadable materials and PowerPoints that will act as your guide throughout the course.
