Course Description

This Stroke Awareness course aims to build on your understanding of what it means to have a stroke and your caring experience. The course will suggest lots of ideas about how you can help people in your care during and after a stroke.

The course is suitable for staff working in hospitals, care homes, day centres, and in people’s own homes. This is reflected in the words used to refer to the people receiving care, such as ‘patient’, ‘resident’, and ‘client'.

The Stroke Awareness course is at Level 3, the equivalent of GCSE or A Level. This course is divided into ten units, each covering a different aspect of caring for people after a stroke. Transient Ischaemic Attacks (TIAs) are also discussed.

Modules

Unit 1: Brain Attack! What a Stroke Is
Unit 2: Assessment, Treatment and Care after a Stroke in the UK
Unit 3: Working as a Team
Unit 4: Essential Skills: Helping with Positioning and Mobility after a Stroke
Unit 5: Essential Skills: Ensuring Good Nutrition after a Stroke
Unit 6: Essential Skills: Helping People Improve Bladder and Bowel Function after a Stroke
Unit 7: Essential Skills: Enabling People to Communicate after a Stroke
