UCD School of Medicine and Medical Science will be hosting a study day on the 1st of February from 9:30-3PM covering current issues and management of stroke in Ireland. This meeting is targeted towards healthcare professionals, clinicians and students involved in healthcare study or research and topics are therefore wide-ranging and diverse, encompassing basic overviews all the way up to specific study types that can be done in stroke research.

Speakers include Prof. Harbison from St. James’s Hospital, Prof. Sean Murphy from The Mater Hospital & RCSI and Prof. David Williams from Beaumont Hospital and attendees will get an insight into stroke diagnosis, treatment and management from an Irish perspective, something which is relatively lacking in the literature. Indeed, current stroke statistics for Ireland are quite hard to find so I believe this study day will be very beneficial from a basic and a more specific point of view.

Registration is open now and the cost is extremely reasonable (€50 standard, €20 for full-time students). If you are interested in attending please follow the link below for the full programme and to register for what looks like an interesting and educational day.
