The Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum (SSNF) aims to promote the essential role that nurses’ play in stroke with the sharing of knowledge, skills, research and expertise that enhances best practice.
This is achieved by playing an active part influencing nursing developments and services at local and national levels with the focus to help improve the stroke journey for patients, families and their carers.
The Stroke Improvement Plan sets out the priorities and actions to deliver improved prevention, treatment and care for all people in Scotland affected by stroke. The SSNF is proud to work as part of the teams making this happen.
Stroke is a life changing experience. The resulting brain damage can affect the visual system causing problems with visual perception, eye movement disorders, low vision and visual field loss. The Quick Reference Guide below summarises the main points of a Best Practice Statement which provides advice on screening, assessing and managing vision problems in the first 30 days after anacute stroke.
