Today we are launching a call for abstracts for the Ist European Life After Stroke Forum which will be held on 12 March 2021 in Barcelona, Spain

Our conference programme covers a range of topical issues in life after stroke as well as cutting-edge developments in response to COVID-19. The programme will comprise keynote lectures by eminent invited speakers supplemented by contributed talks and a poster session. Our draft programme is here.

We are now seeking abstracts for the Life After Stroke Forum, which may give those interested an opportunity to present either a ten-minute oral presentation or a poster presentation.

We are calling on for applications in two areas:

  • Scientific applications: this may be for completed for ongoing trials and studies in the broad area of life after stroke.
  • Grab and Steal: this is to share experiences of service developments in life after stroke where these original ideas and innovative practices could be used by others.

“Life after stroke is a neglected area of the stoke care pathway. It is a particularly important issue for stroke survivors and their carers.

To address this issue, SAFE is organising a first of its kind event in Europe – a one day Life After Stroke Forum.

This will create an opportunity for those who have an interest in this area, whether from a research, policy, advocacy, or support oriented perspective, to come together to share and network.

As chair of the European Life After Stroke Forum scientific conference committee I am delighted that SAFE is launching its call for abstracts today. I am looking forward to receiving excellent applications, whether scientifically, or service development focused, from all over Europe”. Professor Avril Drummond
