Training & Education – Greater Manchester stroke training programme and local events
Greater Manchester stroke training programmes
The network co-ordinates two programmes of free training for staff supporting stroke care delivered in Greater Manchester – introductory and experienced level. Events with hyperlinks are open for bookings and will now be run virtually.
Training is usually aimed at staff working in both community and inpatient settings, and generally applicable to a range of professions including medical staff (experienced level events only).
Royal College of Physician CPD accreditation will be sought for events of particular relevance to doctors. Information is included in each event description on how they may meet CREST competencies and the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board sub specialty training curriculum for stroke medicine.
1. Introductory level
The study days are aimed at staff (except doctors) who may be new to the specialty or need a basic understanding of stroke. The agenda for the events are similar and suitable for professionals from other Greater Manchester Trusts. You can find out more about the individual Trust training events here. Events will hopefully recommence in late 2020, most likely virtually.
2. Foundation programme
This course is likely to be developed in a more virtual format. Details to follow
3. Experienced/advanced level
Our full day conferences have been cancelled for 2020 and only shorter masterclasses will be delivered. Topics will be presented virtually via MS Teams with recordings listed below and on our YouTube channel.
Forthcoming topics will be announced shortly and will include:
Pre hospital stroke care
End of life care
Foot drop pathway
Our Healthcare Assistant training programme has been postponed until 2021
