Can you help us to develop the UK’s biggest Stroke Conference?
The UK Stroke Forum Conference is hosted by Stroke Association and is the UK’s largest stroke conference. It is attended by a wide range of professionals working in stroke care including consultants, nurses, therapists, researchers and NHS managers. A committee of stroke professionals, stroke survivors and carers plans the conference programme and we are looking to recruit one carer and one stroke survivor service user representatives to join the committee. For details of the role of a stroke survivor service user representative click here, or for the role of a carer service user rep click here.
• Do you have experience of stroke, as a stroke survivor, carer or family member/friend of a stroke survivor?
• Do you have previous experience of working with committees?
• Would you be able to identify areas where the involvement of service users would enhance the UK Stroke Forum programme?
As a service user representative you will attend 6 meetings a year and participate as member on the Conference Planning Committee. Meetings are held in London or Birmingham with some meetings taking place via telephone. Membership of the Committee is unpaid however travel expenses and necessary accommodation costs will be reimbursed.
If you are interested in helping us shape the programme of the UK Stroke Assembly 2015 or ensuring that the event is as accessible to as many as possible, then we would love to hear from you! We are always looking for stroke survivors and their carers to be more involved in the planning of the Stroke Assembly. This event is for you so join us in the planning and lets hear what you think the Assembly should be about.
Presentations from the 2014 UK Stroke Assembly can now be viewed here. To see a copy of the programme and more information about the speakers click here to see the final programme booklet. Some presentations will be added shortly.
