National Stroke Network
As clinicians across New Zealand DHBs have increased their use of telehealth to manage care in response to the challenges of Covid-19, so have our stroke teams. A collection of telehealth resources for stroke rehabilitation is now available. These resources have been developed and shared by University rehabilitation specialists and NZ DHB stroke teams.
The Stroke Society of Australasia have issued a statement highlighting the importance of maintaining stroke care during the COVID-19 crisis.
The Stroke Society of Australasia (SSA 2020) conference has been postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis until 2021. See the 2021 conference poster.
