Having a knowledge of the symptoms of stroke can equip you to identify these and act quickly if you are in contact with someone who has a stroke. The quicker medical treatment can be administered, the better the outcome is likely to be. This CPD approved Stroke Awareness Course is aimed primarily at people working in adult care as they are likely to be working closely with people that are most at risk of having a stroke.
Strokes are the fourth single leading cause of death in the UK, as well as a leading cause of disability.
Being aware of the causes and stroke symptoms will help you act fast in a situation where you suspect someone is having a stroke and provide them with the best chance of receiving the treatment they need and minimising the long term impact of the condition.
This Stroke Awareness course will cover the types of strokes, the symptoms, and risk factors.
It will also cover the treatment options and the longer term impact of the condition.
This course helps you understand more about stroke symptoms and signs, what causes a stroke and post stroke recovery and care.
Our Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning you can progress through the modules at your own pace and in your own time, so you can fit the training in around your work and personal life.
There are a lot of courses in our Health & Social Care suite that would make great follow ups to this course and if you are in the adult social care sector then they would all provide valuable additions to your knowledge.
Specific topics that compliment this directly are Diabetes Awareness, Dementia Awareness and Epilepsy Awareness as these are all conditions that can either increase the risk of having a stroke or develop after someone has had a stroke.
