Stroke Awareness

Overview

Strokes are common and while people may die of it, there are so many ways to prevent a stroke, and in the case someone has a stroke, there is emergency treatment that can be provided with immediate effect. There are some ways you can recognise if a patient is susceptible to a stroke, figure their best chance of recovery and, thus, minimise long-term impact. If you wish to, or already work in the health and adult care sector, this is something you should be fully aware of just in case of an emergency. The Stroke Awareness course is comprehensive and provides a wealth of information on the different types of strokes, symptoms and risk elements. You will gain the relevant skills and knowledge on how to reduce the risk of strokes and understand the immediate treatment required in such a situation.

Key modules are fully explored in this course and will give you an understanding of how to recognise symptoms and what course of action you should take when someone is having a stroke. You will also gain the ability to administer medical treatment to ensure the person having a stroke has a positive outcome and eventual recovery.

Stroke Awareness features advice and guidance on key stages of a stroke and the complications that can result in an individual who has suffered a stroke. You will learn of different and effective treatment options for stroke patients. This is a CPD certified course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate across the adult and health care sectors.
