Stroke awareness course

Stroke awareness course

Do you need to do a stroke awareness course?

Strokes are the fourth single leading cause of death in the UK, as well as a leading cause of disability.

Being aware of the causes and symptoms will help you act fast in a situation where you suspect someone is having a stroke and provide them with the best chance of receiving the treatment they need and minimising the long term impact of the condition.

Is this the right stroke awareness course for me?

This course is aimed primarily at people working in adult care as they are likely to be working closely with people that are most at risk of having a stroke.

Having a knowledge of the symptoms of stroke can equip you to identify these and act quickly if you are in contact with someone who has a stroke.

The quicker medical treatment can be administered to the person suffering a stroke the better the outcome is likely to be.

This stroke awareness course will cover the types of strokes, the symptoms, and risk factors.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
