Psychological Management of Stroke

Over 100,000 people in the UK experience a stroke each year. Physical problems after stroke can include inability to walk, and to wash and dress independently. Following stroke, at least 35 per cent of patients will have cognitive impairment, and around a third will suffer from depression and /or anxiety. Recently the psychological needs of stroke survivors have been increasingly acknowledged with major efforts to improve services.

This workshop will be presented by the authors of the newly published Psychological Management of Stroke (Wiley 2012) and consider four hot topics in this area; Neuropsychological Assessment and Rehabilitation, Assessing for Driving after Stroke, Managing Fear of Falling and Service Development.
