While the current safety measures put in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic are being gradually more relaxed in many countries, the situation is still far from normalcy and restrictions will likely remain in some form for forseeable future. With this in mind, we are still not able to return to our normal activities involving physical contact just yet.
However, there is an online learning tool that many of us might find very beneficial, as it allows its users to receive important new knowledge without the need to attend in-person trainings. It's called SSOFT, which is an acronym for Stroke Support Organisation Faculty Tool, and is intended to help anyone interested in setting up or developing a Stroke Support Organisation in Europe. The platform was developed by SAFE, Stroke Alliance For Europe, and through six learning modules, it will help its users to understand how to support stroke survivors and make change happen in their region.
The modules were also inteded to form a part of the programme at the cancelled Training School that had been planned for March 2020, so if you are ready to educate yourselves as we plan the Training School in a new date in this Grant Period, these modules are just what you're looking for.
We also wanted to thank Dr. Markus Wagner of the German Stroke Foundation and SAFE for sharing this project with us.
Feel free to register and complete the six available modules at https://www.ssoft.info/
