This exciting new programme has been developed with funding from the RCN Foundation and in partnership with the Charity SameYou. 

Every 5 seconds someone in the world will die of a stroke (World Stroke Campaign 2016). In England and Wales, a total of 1 million stroke survivors need post-acute care (Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party 2015). Although the incidence of stroke increases with age, 1 in 4 people that have a stroke is younger than 65 years old.

The purpose of this educational programme is to equip registered nurses working in neurological rehabilitation, through education and reflection on their own practice, with the resources and skills to develop person-centred, partnership focussed, practice in the area of neurological care and rehabilitation of adults. Particular emphasis will be placed on exploring rehabilitation in relation to individuals aged 18 to 40 year olds who have suffered Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or Stroke, a relatively neglected area in existing programmes.
