Specialist practice in stroke care (degree level)

Key features

This 40 credit degree-level module has been designed to enhance the quality of provision for patients and their families/carers who have suffered a stroke. We aim to enable practitioners to develop their professional knowledge and skills through study and analysis of their practice in the care and rehabilitation of people with a stroke. The course focuses on the development of the practice-based skills to provide an optimal care environment for effective stroke care, 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

You will also be equipped to facilitate and/or lead on improving services for stroke patients, their carers and families and the interdisciplinary team.

A variety of learning methods will be utilised including lead lectures, demonstrations, group work, problem based learning, critical reading, seminars and discussions. 

This module can be studied as a standalone module or as an optional module towards some of our BSc (Hons) Professional Development pathways - please contact the Professional Development Unit for further information.

This module is delivered by Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with University of Plymouth.
