Update regarding the Northern Ireland Stroke Conference 2021

Over the last year, the NIMAST and the NISC Committee have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation. With hospitals continuing to operate at high response levels to fight the pandemic and being mindful to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we do not believe it would be timely or responsible to proceed with planning a conference for 2021.

We have therefore made the sad decision not to hold the Northern Ireland Stroke Conference in June 2021. We will update this page again shortly.

You can continue to access the latest developments in stroke care and research and pursue your own learning and development by accessing the virtual UK Stroke Forum 2020 event. For a small registration fee, you'll be able to access a full programme of on-demand content until the end of November 2021.

The Northern Ireland Stroke Conference is organised in partnership between the Northern Ireland Multidisciplinary Association for Stroke Teams (NIMAST) and the UK Stroke Forum (UKSF).

This is a multi-disciplinary conference aimed at those from across the stroke pathway to learn the latest research and service developments in stroke care.

At the next Northern Ireland Stroke Conference, you can:

  • Be part of the debate with key players to shape the Northern Ireland stroke agenda.
  • Gain an MDT perspective and network with colleagues from across the whole stroke care pathway.
  • Find out about the latest industry developments and innovations.
  • Showcase your work by providing an abstract for a poster or oral presentation.
  • Gain relevant accredited professional training.

To hear the latest updates, sign up for our Professionals' Network.

This conference is a must for anyone interested in increasing their knowledge on stroke care, professional expertise and learning.
