Go online to learn about stroke

  • 1 Comment
Nurses of all levels can now access a major new online resource to help them learn about stroke.

The launch of the Stroke Specialist Library (SSL) has been set up to support implementation of the new national stroke strategy, announced by the Department of Health at the end of last year.

The SSL, which is part of the National Health Library (NHL), will provide a searchable collection of documents, appraised evidence and evaluated information relating to stroke prevention and treatment. It includes sections on evidence updates information on key organisations.

The library has been developed by a team led by Tom Quinn, professor of cardiac nursing at Coventry University and NLH clinical lead for cardiovascular diseases. Input has also come from the UK Stroke Nurses Forum.

Professor Quinn said: ‘Nurses are key to improving prevention and care of stroke patients. The SSL is intended to play a major part in improving knowledge through providing free online access to a comprehensive range of high quality evidence’’
