Released today, the Scottish Stroke Improvement Programme 2016 Annual National Report includes data from the Scottish Stroke Care Audit. It describes the quality of stroke care in each acute hospital in Scotland, grouped by Health Board, during 2015, and measures each hospital against Scottish Stroke Care Standards (2013).
What can you expect when you start your recovery in hospital? This section covers the move from acute care to rehabilitation in hospitals, introduces the multi-disciplinary team of stroke that will help with your recovery, and provide information on starting rehabilitation therapy. It also looks at the question of whether you will fully recover from your stroke.
The Childhood Stroke Support Service is available for children, families and young people affected by stroke in childhood. The service is a part of the Childhood Stroke Project - a collaboration between the Stroke Association and Evelina London Children's Hospital.
The Childhood Stroke Project is a collaboration between us and Evelina London Children's Hospital. It's funded by the Margaret Giffen Charitable Trust. The service provides tailored information and support for children, young people and families affected by stroke.
Our Stroke Recovery Service provides tailored support commencing in the acute hospital setting and continuing in homes, by addressing the long term practical, emotional and physical needs of stroke survivors and carers.
Researchers at Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Canada have done research that claims that TIAs (mini strokes) could cause long-term disability, and that clot busting drugs like Actilyse could be used to treat them.
Our core service provides high quality information, emotional support and practical advice in the aftermath of a stroke. We begin working with a stroke survivor and their family immediately following a stroke, and will continue to provide the support people need, for as long as they need it – in hospitals and care homes, within their own homes and back into the community.
This two-page communication licence displays your individual needs. This handy leaflet can be placed in visible places, such as on the fridge or at the front of your care plan. This will help carers and professionals learn how to best support you. The communication licence can also be taken into hospital and kept with your notes or by the bed.
