The theme of this online conference is ‘Ageing well with stroke in the era of COVID-19’. At a time where people affected by stroke have been experiencing unprecedented changes in their care and rehabilitation, this conference aims to create an opportunity to share insights acquired during the pandemic and disseminate research findings and service innovation to facilitate recovery and healthy ageing after stroke.
There will be three symposia, which will explore:
In addition, the programme will comprise:
The conference is intended for anyone involved in stroke care, rehabilitation and long-term support, including: nurses, allied health professionals, doctors, researchers, bioengineers, educators and students in these fields, as well as representatives from the 3rd sector. It may also be of interest to people affected by stroke.
This conference, the first of its kind, is hosted jointly by Glasgow Caledonian University’s Ageing Well Research Group and the Living with Stroke and Other Neurological Conditions Research Group, as well as the Scottish Stroke AHP Forum and the Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum. Due to the pandemic, many organisations had to cancel their conference in 2020. By joining forces, the conference hosts aspire to creating a cross-disciplinary platform that is stronger than ever before, to ensure that knowledge and insights be shared with everyone involved in stroke care and rehabilitation, for the benefit of people affected by stroke.
This conference is scheduled for Thursday 17 June, from 12.00 (‘virtual doors open’ at 11.30) to 16.30. This conference will be entirely online, and content can be accessed, on demand, for a year after this date.
