With the European Stroke Organisation, we have now published a Factsheet on the Stroke Action Plan for Europe 2018-2030.
This summary will help more people understand the basic tenets of the Stroke Action Plan for Europe and how the Plan aims to improve stroke care across the seven domains of the stroke care pathway.
You can download the Factsheet and find out more information at https://actionplan.eso-stroke.org/
Today is International Women’s Day. To coincide with this, the European Federation of Neurological Associations has launched a survey, Assessing diagnosis and care pathways of people living with neurological disorders in Europe.
Despite higher prevalence among women of many neurological disorders gender stereotypes can lead to underdiagnosis and delayed treatment.
The survey aims to help identify the challenges facing all affected by neurological conditions, including stroke.
The survey is open to anyone 18+, living with a neurological disorder, or their carers and is available in eight languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Romanian).
As a membership organisation representing Stroke Support Organisations from across Europe, our thoughts are with our colleagues, friends, stroke survivors, their families and carers in all the areas affected by this war.
We do not condone any activity that negatively affects the welfare and the wellbeing of people with stroke and the wider stroke community, as well as all civilians in the Ukraine.
We remain focused and united with our partners and hope for a swift resolution.
