Join our guidelines working group

The Stroke Foundation is seeking to fill some vacancies in the content working groups for our living stroke guidelines.

Using monthly searches for the latest research findings, the living stroke guidelines project is making it easier for health professionals to follow up-to-the-minute best practice. Crucial to this process are the members of our content working groups, who assess the research and use it to create evidence-based recommendations.

These groups also provide their expert opinion to fill in the gaps in published evidence with consensus-based recommendations and practice points.

We currently need new members who can contribute to the topics below, as well as any suggestions for additional people to join the wider group.

We particularly encourage applications from mid-career people to be involved in shaping our national clinical guidelines.

  • ICH management – medical interventions
  • Oxygen therapy (looking specifically for a nurse)
  • Pyrexia management (looking specifically for a nurse)
  • Cholesterol lowering therapy
  • Swelling of the extremities (OT and/or physio)
  • Head position (acute nursing)
  • Peer support (OT/social worker/rehab nurse)
  • Pressure care (nursing/OT)
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Stroke unit care (looking specifically for a nurse)
  • Early nutrition (looking specifically for a nurse)
  • Discharge care plans (looking specifically for a nurse)
  • Treatment of emotionalism (psychology/social work)
  • Prevention of depression and/or anxiety (psychology/social work/medical)
  • Treatment for depression and/or anxiety (psychology/medical)

Please pass these topics on to your networks.
