The Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum (SSNF) aims to promote the essential role that nurses’ play in stroke with the sharing of knowledge, skills, research and expertise that enhances best practice.
This is achieved by playing an active part influencing nursing developments and services at local and national levels with the focus to help improve the stroke journey for patients, families and their carers.
The Charter for people living with stroke in Scotland aims to improve the experience and access to community services for thousands of people who have a stroke every year.
The Charter has been supported and endorsed by the Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum. Campbell Chalmers, Chair, SSNF said, “Rehabilitation, self-management and long-term support from stroke is essential to ensure people affected live as healthy, active and independent lives as possible. The Charter enables people by ensuring awareness and understanding of the care and support services which should be available”.
Stroke is a life changing experience. The resulting brain damage can affect the visual system causing problems with visual perception, eye movement disorders, low vision and visual field loss. The Quick Reference Guide below summarises the main points of a Best Practice Statement which provides advice on screening, assessing and managing vision problems in the first 30 days after anacute stroke.
