Professor Avril Drummond (England), will be chairing the second session on 9 November 11.45 – 13.00 CET.
Fatigue after stroke is common and debilitating. Yet despite much research, there are many unanswered questions about fatigue and how best to manage it. Stroke survivors often report that clinicians do not talk to them about fatigue and some only learn much later that it is a symptom of stroke. This session will provide an overview of the topic and the important issues for both clinicians and stroke survivors.
Avril will be joined by speakers:
- Ruth Miller, stroke survivor (England)
- Gillian Mead, clinical academic (Scotland)
- Anners Lerdal, clinical researcher (Norway)
Join us and you will learn about fatigue after stroke, why it is it important and what things might help.’
Professor Avril Drummond, Session Chair
