Dumfries and Galloway

The Training Courses in Stroke Care are delivered in partnership between Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and NHS Dumfries & Galloway.

These are accessible to all health and social care staff throughout the region who work with people and their families who have had a stroke. The courses give opportunity to reflect the continuing advances in stroke care and also highlight developments within this region.

All courses aim to be relevant to the workplace and reflective of practice. Participants benefit from presentations given by experienced clinicians working within stroke services.

The generic courses, Current Care in Stroke Part 1 & 2, provide some continuation in aspects of stroke care and incorporate the main topics and issues relevant to stroke management. Other courses are also available which are tailored to meet the needs of specific groups or areas involved in stroke care.

The format and content of the course are updated regularly to meet the needs of staff working within NHS Dumfries & Galloway. To increase accessibility for all staff, the courses are held in both Dumfries and Newton Stewart.
