Training & Education – Greater Manchester stroke training programme and local events
Greater Manchester stroke training programmes
The network co-ordinates two programmes of free training for staff supporting stroke care delivered in Greater Manchester – introductory and experienced level. Events with hyperlinks are open for bookings.
Training is usually aimed at staff working in both community and inpatient settings, and generally applicable to a range of professions including medical staff (experienced level events only).
Royal College of Physician CPD accreditation will be sought for events of particular relevance to doctors. Information is included in each event description on how they may meet CREST competencies and the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board sub specialty training curriculum for stroke medicine.
We also offer a range of online training for different professionals.
