Stroke Awareness Training Course

Our Stroke Awareness course is ideal for health and social care workers, whether they are about to start or already have experience. The course has been designed to equip staff with the tools necessary to give a high standard quality care to those that have suffered from a stroke.

Want to make sure your staff have full stroke awareness? FMC delivers the necessary training from its centre in Carlisle, Cumbria, or in your workplace if required. Evening and weekend training can also be arranged. Fill out our contact form to organise Stroke Awareness training for your staff or give us a call on 01228 538016 to book now.

While this training is applicable to all health and social care staff, it’s particularly useful for those working with people at high risk of suffering from strokes.

It’s important for health and social care workers to have knowledge and understanding of how to care for and support people who have had a full stroke or mini stroke transient ischemic attack (TIA). With this training, care workers can help reduce the impact of a stroke on service users and raise their quality of life.

As well as showing staff how to adequately care for those that have suffered strokes, it helps them spot the signs of impending stroke.

Reacting quickly to a suspected stroke can help minimise the effects. The longer it takes for someone to receive treatment after suffering a stroke, the greater the chances of disability afterwards, so it’s imperative that staff know what to look out for.

What does our Stroke Awareness training cover?

Our course is usually delivered over three hours and aims to give staff the tools to identify the signs of stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and other vascular problems. As well as this it equips them to effectively care for those that have suffered from strokes in the past.

During training, participants will learn the following:

  • How to recognise the signs and symptoms of a stroke or TIA
  • Cognitive problems, communication, problems, swallowing difficulties
  • How to apply empathy
  • Understanding F.A.S.T to properly react to a suspected stroke
  • Delivering high quality care to a service user with restricted movement or weakness to one side of the body
  • Gaining an awareness of other vascular issues, including blocked arteries and stents, and how to care for people with these issues
  • Understanding and gaining awareness of the mental health effects that a stroke can have on an individual
  • Preventative measures

On successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of learning.
