Two of the most influential bodies in Europe concerning stroke care are the European Stroke Organisation known as ESO, and the Stroke Alliance for Europe, commonly known as SAFE. And these two have joined forces earlier this year to support awareness, prevention and advocacy for improved stroke research and treatments. Stroke patients and those looking after them need to know that they have the safety, choice and empowerment as the guiding principles of care.

Please watch below the interview with Dr. Valeria Caso, neurologist from the University of Perugia, Italy, the President of ESO and John Barrick, the patient advocate and President of the Board of SAFE, the only European-wide alliance of stroke support organisations.
