Eastern AHSN will host the East of England Stroke Forum until July 2025. The aim of the Forum is to nurture, develop and sustain a community of knowledgeable professionals competent in meeting the needs of individuals affected by stroke in the East of England. Our role within the Forum also ties in with our work to help address the identification and prevention of conditions linked with cardiovascular disease (CVD) across the East of England.
The Forum will be supported in the following ways:
Over the course of three years, we will hold 22 interactive online learning sessions. Each session will draw on a range of expert speakers and have clearly defined learning objectives in alignment with the Stroke-specific Education Framework (SSEF). We intend to seek accreditation for these sessions, so that attendees can earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
We plan to hold the first session in November 2022 and then at regular intervals until May 2025.
We will host three regional face-to-face conferences (1 per year, 2023-2025) for all those involved in stroke care to hear from expert speakers; learn about the latest research and innovation in the field; share ideas and ultimately improve standards of care for stroke survivors.
To support clinicians’ continuous professional development, an online repository with resources related to stroke research and care (including those resulting from the interactive learning series and annual conferences) has been created.
To be kept up-to date on the interactive learning sessions, the regional conferences or to request access to the online repository, please register your interest below. If you would like to hear more about this project, or would like to get involved, please contact [email protected].
You can also find out about our wider work in improving the detection and management of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Eastern AHSN is commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement to help address the identification and prevention of conditions linked with cardiovascular disease (CVD) across the East of England with a particular focus on lipid management, familial hypercholesterolaemia, atrial fibrillation and high blood pressure.
