Conference theme

Stroke has become a major challenge for medicine and health policy.  It is the third biggest cause of death in the UK and largest single cause of severe disability.
Recent advances in the recommended clinical management of stroke patients are occurring at a rapid pace, making it difficult for busy health care professionals to keep updated in this field.
Research and new technology are constantly pushing the envelope and delivering new therapies, procedures and ways of working.  Recognition of stroke as a medical emergency has also led to a significant reorganisation of services. Now designed to deliver optimal hyper-acute care and improve the outcomes for the growing number of stroke survivors.
This update of the latest research and advances in the emergency and early treatment for stroke patients will be invaluable in helping clinicians deal with difficult management decisions encountered in the care of patients with cerebrovascular disease.
 
This conference will be a meeting ground for leading stroke experts and researchers who will provide an analysis for some of the latest cutting edge developments in stroke care from stroke prevention and diagnosis to early treatment and rehabilitation.
The conference is aimed at primary care practitioners, neurologists, Accident and Emergency practitioners, cardiologists, vascular and neurosurgeons, registrars, radiologists, medical scientists, rehabilitation specialists, nurse practitioners who work with patients in acute stroke and stroke prevention settings and policy makers and commissioners in the field of stroke.

Topics will focus on raising awareness of stroke in the Emergency Department, diagnosis and initial management of acute stroke and transient ischaemic attack.  We will look at what must be considered when setting up an acute stroke unit, a stroke thrombolysis together with insight into the latest neuroradiology tools, current approaches in anticoagulation, managing atrial fibrillation and Malignant MCA syndrome.

The program faculty is comprised of leading stroke care specialists and researchers. Plenary will be interspersed with questions & answers sessions and panel discussions providing ample opportunity for participants to engage with faculty.

This stimulating new event will enable us to remain up-to-date with the latest advances in stroke treatment and care, delivering the key information needed, in an affordable and accessible format.
