Speakers for the 2nd session of the European Life After Stroke series announced

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.’

European Life After Stroke Forum Series 2022 open for registration

Our second free online event of 2022 on Wednesday 9 November is now open for registration.

We are pleased to bring to you three exciting sessions focussing on key issues faced by people living with stroke: getting back to work; fatigue and getting active. Chaired by Dr Carina Persson (Sweden), Professor Avril Drummond (England), and Juliet Bouverie (England) respectively. Each session will include a mix of presentations from stroke survivors and academically active speakers in the field of life after stroke.

There are many issues for people after a stroke including getting back to a good quality of life that is worth living. Here, the European Life After Stroke Forum event in November will focus on three areas that are really important to help those living with stroke get their lives back on track. These sessions will cover a mix of research and evidence, contributions from health practitioners as well as hearing from stroke survivors who will share their personal experiences. This event is for anyone with an interest in life after stroke and keen to improve services and care post stroke and rehabilitation.
