Stroke rehabilitation resource developed for the registered workforce

Posted on: April 26th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A course on stroke rehabilitation has been added to NHS England elearning for healthcare’s Stroke programme.

The course is designed to demonstrate that rehabilitation should continue outside of individual therapy sessions, if stroke survivors are to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Developed in partnership with NHS England’s Long-Term Conditions and Prevention team, it is aimed at the registered health and care workforce, which includes nursing staff and allied health professionals, and consists of 2 sessions:

Session 1 focuses on how you can support stroke survivors with eating, drinking, communicating, creating the right therapeutic environment and the importance of good mouthcare.

Session 2 focuses on your important role in 24-hour rehabilitation and how you can support stroke survivors with their upper limb, positioning, transferring and decision making. It also helps develop your understanding of perception and insight and how this can affect a stroke survivor.

For more information and to access the course, plus many other relevant resources, please visit the Stroke programme page.

A new session on stroke rehabilitation has been developed for the non-registered workforce to discuss what a stroke is, what difficulties can arise because of stroke and what management strategies can be offered to support the stroke survivor in their rehabilitation.

The session includes 6 videos, covering mood, cognition, communication, swallowing, positioning and manual handling, and functional independence. You can access HEE stroke resources by visiting the programme page. Alternatively, you can visit the elfh Hub to access the session directly, using your elearning for healthcare (elfh) login details.
