Network’s first conference a huge success!
The programme, presentations, Facebook Live and Twitter updates are available here.
The event was opened by Professor Pippa Tyrell who introduced a range of speakers including a keynote address by Juliet Bouverie, CEO of the Stroke Association, who complemented the region on its services and work to improve stroke care.
The afternoon was chaired by Professor Craig Smith who had the pleasure of announcing the North west Stroke Choir, who sang a set of uplifting and very personal songs with their usual gusto! The afternoon featured more talks plus a choice of workshops.
Our Clinical Lead Dr Jordi Morell rounded off proceedings by awarding prizes for our poster competition; the winners were:
Inpatient rehabilitation – Sylvia Moss et al (BASIC). Balance Project Study: Prevention of falls in clients over 55 years with neurological conditions by using virtual reality
Community services – M McCabe & J Halpin (Stroke Association). Caring for You. A support programme for carers. (pictured left)
We will be holding an even bigger and better event next year, so watch this space!
