Last week we held our 12th UK Stroke Club Conference at East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham. Our research engagement officer shared our initiatives in Patient and Public Involvement in research (PPI) advising on how those affected by stroke can have their say on the research that we fund.
This week we ran our first dedicated Service User Review Panel (SURP) training day, which was an opportunity for SURP members new and longer serving to receive the latest guidance in lay review, and to network too.
The first NIHR Stroke Research Workshop took place this week, and was hosted at the University of Cambridge.
We heard exciting talks from a range of leaders in the field and early career stroke researchers. As well as the scientific programme, the event was an excellent networking opportunity for the UK stroke research community as a whole.
Stenting of the carotid arteries (running up the sides of the neck) is a common surgical procedure to reduce the risk of stroke. Stenting involves inserting a metal mesh into the artery to help widen it and improve blood flow. However, a new study published in the journal Neurology suggests that stenting of the vertebral arteries (that run up the neck behind the carotid arteries) appears safe too.
Last week, our lecturers attended two training days at our head office, at Stroke Association House, London. These form part of a schedule of activity designed to ensure they have the skills, and support needed to succeed in becoming the next generation of research leaders.
The UK Stroke Forum Conference (UKSF) is the largest multidisciplinary stroke event in the UK, attracting over 1,500 delegates from across the stroke care pathway. It's an unmissable event for anyone working in the field of stroke care. Early bird registration ends: 31 August 2017
