New video assessment of stroke elearning now available

Posted on: November 30th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new elearning session to support a lifesaving ‘on the spot’ stroke diagnosis service has been developed for ambulance crews and stroke specialists.

The clinical video assessment for stroke (CVAS) model allows ambulance crews to video call stroke physicians to discuss and assess potential stroke patients. This approach accelerates treatment options for time-sensitive conditions such as thrombolysis and thrombectomy by making sure the patient is promptly transferred to the right facility for treatment, such as a hyperacute stroke unit (HASU), a local emergency department.

This elearning introduces the priorities of the CVAS service and helps stroke clinicians to confidently perform CVAS assessments, recognise important presentation patterns and avoid common pitfalls so that patients can be treated in the most time efficient and focused way.

There will be a short assessment at the end of the 20-minute session which must be passed to allow the training to be completed.

To find out more and access the elearning, please visit the CVAS programme page.

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.
