Course Aims

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.

This course will cover the types of strokes, the symptoms, and risk factors. It will also cover the
treatment options and the longer term impact of the condition.

Additional Information

There are a lot of courses in our health and social care suite that would make great follow ups to this
course and if you are in the adult social care sector then they would all provide valuable additions to
your knowledge.

Specific topics that compliment this directly are Diabetes Awareness, Dementia Awareness and
Epilepsy Awareness as these are all conditions that can either increase the risk of having a stroke or
develop after someone has had a stroke
