What will this course cover?

Stroke is the third biggest killer and the leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Each year over 150,000 people suffer a stroke. The Stroke Association recognises the huge impact a stroke can have and is the only national charity solely concerned with helping everyone affected. In collaboration with The Stroke Association, Bucks New University has developed this course with the intention of increasing the awareness of health care professionals and others who care for stroke patients about its consequences, in order to enable improvement in care provision, management and quality of life.
