SameYou joins the UK Stroke Forum coalition

SameYou has joined the UK Stroke Forum, a coalition of 31 organisations who are all committed to improving stroke care in the UK.

The forum, which is the UK’s largest multidisciplinary conference for stroke care professionals, brings members together to learn from each other and share new ideas and best practice. It also promotes shared research and knowledge exchange between the clinical and scientific disciplines that have an interest in stroke.

Last year more than 1800 healthcare professionals attended the event in Birmingham, this year the 19th UK Stroke Forum conference will be held in Liverpool from December 3 to 5.

The organisations range from professional associations, charities and special interest groups and includes the Society for Research in Rehabilitation, British Aphasiology Society and the Royal College of General Practitioners.

The event attracts world-class speakers and leading physicians and gives delegates the chance to discover the latest research and service developments via keynote lectures. Delegates can also take part in training workshops and learn about new innovations and network with colleagues from the entire care pathway.

Jenny Clarke, MBE, CEO and co-founder of SameYou, said: “We hear from so many survivors that strokes are still seen as something that affects older people, and how they are not always supported in the way that relates to them. This includes essential aspects for a younger person, such as getting back to work or study, relationships and socialising.

“We are delighted to be part of the UK Stroke Forum coalition to speak on behalf of the thousands of people who contact us, and work alongside healthcare professionals and researchers to help shape the future of rehabilitation and ensure survivors’ needs are raised at the highest level.”

The main activities of the forum are to plan and deliver one annual scientific conference and the endorsement of stroke-specific learning through the Stroke Specific Education Framework.
