Chaired by Dr Carina Persson (University of Gothenburg, Sweden), Professor Avril Drummond (University of Nottingham, England), and Juliet Bouverie (Stroke Association, England) respectively. Each session will include a mix of presentations from stroke survivors and academically active speakers in the field of life after stroke.

Session overviews

Getting back to work after stroke

Going back to work after a stroke is an important goal for many but may seem impossible. Yet, in spite of impairments, a return to professional work is possible. This session provides practical help on doing this.

Fatigue after stroke – what can we do?

Fatigue after stroke is common and debilitating. Yet despite much research, there are many unanswered questions about fatigue and how to manage it. Stroke survivors often report that clinicians do not talk to them about fatigue and that it is a symptom of stroke. This session will provide an overview of the topic and the important issues for both clinicians and stroke survivors.

Physical activity – getting active without sweat and lycra!

Being active after stroke is important both mentally and physically. This session will include evidence and how therapists support stroke survivors to get and stay active. A stroke survivor will also share their tips and experiences. The session will help to bust some common myths about physical activity and stroke.

SAFE is seeking accreditation for this event from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
