East of England Stroke Forum

The EoE Stroke Forum convenes healthcare professionals from across our region with a specific interest in stroke services.

Health Innovation East will host the East of England Stroke Forum until July 2025. The aim of the Forum is to nurture, develop and sustain a community of knowledgeable professionals competent in meeting the needs of individuals affected by stroke in the East of England. Our role within the Forum also ties in with our work to help address the identification and prevention of conditions linked with cardiovascular disease (CVD) across the East of England.

The Forum will be supported in the following ways:

An interactive online learning series

Over the course of three years, we will hold 22 interactive online learning sessions. Each session will draw on a range of expert speakers and have clearly defined learning objectives in alignment with the Stroke-specific Education Framework (SSEF). We intend to seek accreditation for these sessions, so that attendees can earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

The sessions began in November 2022 and then at regular intervals until May 2025.

Access the recordings, slides and agendas and see future dates now.

Online repository of resources

To support clinicians’ continuous professional development, an online repository with resources related to stroke research and care (including those resulting from the interactive learning series and annual conferences) has been created.

Annual face-to-face conference

We will host three regional face-to-face conferences (1 per year, 2023-2025) for all those involved in stroke care to hear from expert speakers; learn about the latest research and innovation in the field; share ideas and ultimately improve standards of care for stroke survivors.

This year’s conference was held on 19 September in Newmarket, Suffolk. Recordings, slides and the agenda from the day can be viewed here.
