With over 150,000 people having a stroke every year, it is the 3rd largest cause of death after heart disease and cancer, and with an ageing population, stroke incidence is likely to increase.

Now in its second year, this practical one day masterclass will raise your awareness of key risk factors and the latest treatments available in the management of your stroke patients. Our expert speakers will also discuss stroke prevention and rehabilitation methods, and will deliver important updates on the latest evidence based medicine and best practice.

Chaired by:

Dr Iqbal Malik, Consultant Cardiologist, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London
Dr Arindam Kar, Consultant in stroke medicine, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London
