Abstract

Title: Stroke education for healthcare professionals: Making it fit for purpose Research questions: 1. What are healthcare professionals' (HCPs) educational priorities regarding stroke care? 2. Do stroke care priorities vary across the primary and secondary sectors? 3. How do HCPs conceive stroke care will be delivered in 2010? Study design: This was a two-year study using focus groups and interviews for instrument development, questionnaires for data collection and workshops to provide study feedback. Data were collected in 2005-06. Study site: One Scottish health board. Inclusion criteria: All National Health Service healthcare professionals working wherever stroke care occurred. Population and sample: Participants were drawn from 4 university teaching hospitals, 2 community hospitals, 1 geriatric medicine day hospital, 48 general practices (GPs), 12 care homes and 15 community teams. The sample comprised 155 doctors, 313 nurses, 133 therapists (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists), and 29 'other HCPs' (14 dieticians, 7 pharmacists, 2 podiatrists and 6 psychologists).
