Sample text

Anne W. Alexandrov Key points • • • Stroke is common and complex neurovascular disease, which makes it an important public health issue and a healthcare professional priority topic. Given the complexity of the disease, the variety of ways it can present, and the differences between treatment regimes for best outcomes of different types of stroke, it is essential that all clinical staff involved with stroke have a thorough understanding of its underpinning anatomy, physiology and disease processes.

For example, recommendations about palliative care in the National Clinical Guidelines are underpinned by consensus within the guideline development group, or extrapolated from the cancer literature. Secondly, there is an increasing awareness of the usefulness of other forms of knowledge such as patient experience, practical ‘know-how’ and information from the local context on which to base the development of services (Rycroft-Malone et al. 2004). Whilst the implementation of research demonstrating clinical and economic effectiveness is a key issue for all health and social care professions, nursing has adopted a broad approach to service development.

Chapter 1 provides more detail of these. By providing an indication of how services should be organised and structured across the disease trajectory, the stroke strategy provides nurses with an opportunity to demonstrate how nursing expertise can support its delivery. Whilst the publication of national stroke strategies provides significant impetus and direction for service development, a range of other resources are available to facilitate service development. Although not exhaustive, the following sections provide a brief overview of the some of the most relevant resources.
