Coffee with Latin America: Challenges and opportunities in stroke care and post stoke care

Coffee with LA-stroke

Join us to discuss ‘Challenges and opportunities in stroke care and post stoke care’ on Thursday 15 July 2021 at 9:15 am (AEST) in the next session of our 'Coffee with Latin America' series.

Across different regions, the prevention and management strategies for people at risk of stroke, or who have experienced a stroke, are needed. We also need initiatives that go beyond the acute management of stroke and cater for stroke survivors long after their hospital stay. The rapidly increasing burden of stroke is presenting immense challenges in Latin America and many economies in transition, where prevention and management strategies are uneven and inadequate. Cross-regional collaborations can help to overcome structural, funding and skill barriers affecting acute and long-term stroke care. This webinar will draw on the expertise of four speakers, presenting on different stages and aspect of stroke care, including the challenges of post-stroke care in low-income settings. 

The format will be informal, fast-paced, and interactive. We hope you will join us to improve your understanding, make new connections, strengthen skills and critical thinking, and contribute to international knowledge exchange.

This series aims to facilitate global collaboration and learning and provide an opportunity for outreach and connection with the global health community
