Introduction

Could you identify a stroke - or a transient ischaemic attack? Do you know the causes of strokes, risk factors and prevention methods? This informative course will boost your understanding of diagnosis, recovery and care. It's essential for those working in health, social care and care homes, but also important for carers, fitness centre staff, and even the general public.

The course also covers the effects of strokes (physical, mental and emotional); how to minimise their impact; and what resources are available to stroke survivors and carers.
