Stroke courses  

Stroke Association  

A series of one-day courses, available on various dates and at locations around the country, are offered by the Stroke Association. Entitled ‘caring for people affected by stroke’, these are aimed at health professionals.  

However, they may also be of benefit to any individual who cares for someone who has had a stroke. The courses cover physical needs, swallowing, communication and the psychological effects of strokes.  

Each one-day course costs £60 plus VAT and includes materials and a certificate.  

It also has NVQ 2/3 validation in health and social care. The core modules will be listed on the back of the certificates.  

For further information, contact the Stroke Services Training and Development Unit on (020) 8994 2847 or email SST&DD@stroke.org.uk
