The European Stroke Organisation (ESO) is looking for support for the Stroke Action Plan for Europe (SAP-E) by incorporating the role of Chief Operations Officer (COO) in the leadership structure of the Steering Committee.
SAP-E is a key project that we run in partnership with ESO. It was designed by a group of stroke experts from across Europe and covers the whole stroke care pathway and sets targets for the implementation of evidence-based preventive actions and stroke services until 2030. It’s ultimate goal is to reduce the burden of stroke through the improvement of care at the national and European levels.
ESO is looking for a motivated early mid-career, academic stroke care professional who is interested in actively shaping the future of how stroke is perceived and treated within Europe. They will contribute to the success of SAP-E by supporting and driving implementation of the Stroke Action Plan in respective regional countries.
The deadline for applications is 14 November 2022.

Professor Avril Drummond (England) will be chairing the session on Fatigue after stroke – what can we do? at our European Life After Stroke series event on 9 November.
Fatigue after stroke is common and debilitating. Yet there are many unanswered questions about fatigue and how best to manage it.
Stroke survivors often say doctors do not talk to them about fatigue and many 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)

We have three plenary sessions for our next life after stroke series that feature key issues faced by people living with stroke.
Each will focus on the real-life experiences of people living with stroke on:
- getting back to work
- coping with fatigue and
- getting active post stroke.
At the going back to work after a stroke, we will discuss how this is an important goal for many but may seem impossible. Yet, a return to professional work is possible.
