Stroke 2023 conference

Joint annual meeting of the Stroke Society of Australasia (SSA) and Smart Strokes

22-25 August 2023


A welcome from The Stroke Society of Australasia and Smart Strokes Scientific Meeting Organising Committee

We would like to extend a warm invitation to join us in Melbourne in August 2023, for the combined Stroke Society of Australasia and Smart Strokes Nursing and Allied Health Scientific Meeting.

Building on the previous success of our interprofessional combined meetings, the theme for the 2023 conference is “Championing Care”. Our vibrant program aims to provide insights into the latest research for high quality treatments and therapies across the continuum of care. We will be highlighting our co-designed research, patient advocacy initiatives and expanding on cutting edge research methods, to transform clinical practice and improve patient outcomes.

This year’s meeting will take place within the sporting precinct of Melbourne, a diverse city with beautiful public green spaces, a vibrant arts and cultural scene, internationally renowned dining and a rich indigenous heritage. The city has seen many international successes across the whole spectrum of the sporting arena. We hope to similarly inspire attendees to be “champions of care” for stroke, nationally and internationally. In striving towards the goals of improved evidence-based care, therapies and outcomes for stroke we will build on the accomplishments of previous meetings and the translation of new emerging research that informs our field.

This conference will showcase our region’s exemplary research, clinical leadership and the growing capacity of all members of the SSA and Smart Strokes community from Australia, New Zealand, and internationally through our workshops, discussion forums, presentations and plenary sessions. Please do join us in August 2023 in Melbourne.
