New stroke forum

Practice and district nurses managing stroke patients can now access information, help and support from a new National Stroke Nursing Forum.

The forum comes ahead of the new GMS contract which will for the first time provide an incentive for practices to keep a record of patients with stroke and TIA, and maintain ongoing management benchmarks. The organisation will provide a forum for discussion between all nurses with an interest in stroke, enable them to share best practice and evidence-based guidelines and give nurses a collective voice to influence policy development.
