Why have we developed StrokeConnector?
Over the last two years we have gathered the views of our members through the Global Educational Needs Survey and the Survey of Society Members. Feedback included requests for more opportunities for networking and collaboration between professional and stroke support organisation members, support to develop advocacy skills, and opportunities to learn from best practice examples of driving better stroke outcomes.
We have developed StrokeConnector in response to this feedback and as a membership benefit. StrokeConnector is the second stage of our website redesign and it provides the opportunity for our membership to share their content, to access targeted resources and to interact with each other.
This online community will connect our members from across the world and enable them to share their insights and experiences, while also accessing relevant resources.
What will it include?
StrokeConnector has three areas:
This will include members’ advocacy case studies, World Stroke Day reports and signpost to advocacy resources from other organisations.
This will include member profiles so that members can get to know more about each other, their involvement in stroke care and location.
There will be discussion topics that members can sign up to and join the discussion thread.
Members will be able to share details of their events, at local, national and regional level.
We will host webinars and recordings will be available for members.
This will include links to the patient education libraries of our members, case studies of how members have grown their organisations and signpost to stroke support resources.
As part of WSO's webinar programme the next webinar on 30th April will mark the launch of Stroke Connector.
