Instructions

The National Stroke Foundation assists GPs, Divisions of General Practice, Medicare Locals and other interested bodies to deliver ‘The Best Care Guide to Stroke Management in General Practice’ by providing administration support for the promotion, registration and evaluation of the activity. We also produce and distribute attendance certificates and complete all RACGP requirements to ensure participants receive QI&CPD points.

If you would like to deliver ‘The Best Care Guide to Stroke Management in General Practice’, please contact Kelvin Hill email: khill@strokefoundation.com.au, or by phone on 03 9670 1000 or 1300 194 196 to request the presentation kit.

The kit comprises a resource CD with the PowerPoint slide presentations, the Facilitator’s Guide, attendance list templates, predisposing and reinforcing activities for the ALM, evaluation forms and GP feedback to RACGP forms.

The Facilitator’s Guide includes instructions for running the activities and detailed notes for each of the presentation slides. Please note that all slides and discussion points are optional depending on the needs of the audience. The modules should be delivered by a stroke specialist and you will need to identify a speaker and inform us who is delivering the modules.
