Bridges Symposium 2014

The 5th annual Bridges symposium was held on 17th June 2014 and located at St George's University of London.  It generated much interest and demand for attendance, being attended by over 120 healthcare professionals, stroke survivors, carers and individuals working in, commissioning or interested in stroke rehabilitation.

Attendees were given the first opportunity to hear about the findings from the recently completed research trial ('SESAME') funded by NIHR-Research for Patient Benefit. This trial evaluated the feasibility of embedding a stroke self-management programme (Bridges) into community stroke rehabilitation.
