Course summary

Programme description

Every 5 seconds someone in the world will die of a stroke (World Stroke Campaign 2016). In England and Wales, a total of 1 million stroke survivors need post-acute care (Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party 2015). Although the incidence of stroke increases with age, 1 in 4 people that have a stroke are younger than 65 years old.

Who is this programme for?

This programme is being developed in response to a commission by the Royal College of Nursing Foundation (RCN) Foundation (part of the Royal College of Nursing Group) in partnership with the Charity SameYou for Nursing Studies, Health in Social Science.

The programme provides a Postgraduate Certificate in Neurological Rehabilitation for Registered Nurses (Home and International).

The purpose of the programme is to equip registered nurses working in neurological care and rehabilitation, with the resources and skills to develop person centred, focussed, practice in the area of neurological care and rehabilitation of adults. This is achieved through education and reflection on your own practice.

How will I learn?

The programme is delivered online and part-time.

The programme will cover the whole lifespan; particular emphasis will also be placed on individuals aged 18 to 40 years old, who are relatively neglected in this area.

The Postgraduate Certificate enables nurses the opportunity to return to educational study whilst working clinically, to benefit from current theory, practice, research and innovation in nursing, health and social care practice.

You will develop a critical understanding of contemporary health care with a specific focus in neurological rehabilitation and care. As such, the programme will equip you to start developing knowledge and skills to be a critically reflective practitioner, able to provide evidence-based practice in both a local and international context.
