The stroke training courses in Fife are delivered in partnership with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and have been running since 2004.
All courses are open to health professionals and social service staff employed within Fife. Please contact the Stroke Education Facilitator directly to discuss this further.
The courses have been designed as:
- Current Care in Stroke Part 1 - a two day course which can take up to 20 participants
- Current Care in Stroke Part 2 - a two day course which can take up to 20 participants
- Single Stroke Study Days - a one day training course that focuses on a specific topic in stroke care.
- Social Services Stroke Study Day - a one day training course for social services, voluntary and private sector staff.
- STAT (Stroke & TIA Assessment Training) Fife - this takes the form of 1 day and focuses on the recognition, assessment and treatment of acute stroke and TIA.
Each course and study day stands alone, the content having been carefully chosen to address the knowledge and skills required at that particular level.
The courses and study days aim to be:
- Relevant to the workplace
- Reflective of practice
- Empowering and enabling
- Challenging, but supportive and non judgmental
- Confidence building
Specifically designed study days can be set up in order to address the learning needs of particular staff groups.
