Nurses stroke forum

1 July 2010

More than 60 stroke nurse leaders from across the country attended the Ministry of Health’s stroke forum held in June. The ministry said nearly all 20 district health boards were represented, plus a number of aged-care facilities and organisations, and it was good to see nurses connecting and developing a strong stroke nursing network.

The forum was addressed by stroke specialists on nurse-lead TIA and thrombolysis, developing nurse practitioners and stroke education. More information is available from the ministry’s nursing website: www.moh.govt.nz/nursing
