Stroke survivors take centre stage at our Life After Stroke Series event, 9 November

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.

Speaker, Anders Andersson, stroke survivor, board member, first vice chairman Stroke Foundation, Göteborg, Sweden, will be sharing his experiences.

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

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.’
