Congratulations to Emma Boger, Sara Demain and Sue Latter for wining best poster at the National Stroke Forum Conference.  Emma's poster 'Stuck between expectation and hope: The experience of self-management for people after stroke - a focus group study' highlighted how people with stroke feel disempowered by a lack of support structures to help them self-manage after stroke. 

Sara Demain also presented "Beyond therapy discharge - self-referral, self-management or fending for yourself" and a result of the interest expressed by delegates Sara is going to establish a new national network for clinicians, researchers and people with stroke who are interested in supported stroke self-management. 


Nursing student Alice North has had an article published about student nurses beginning their placements in online newspaper Soton Tab.
