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.
