The conference on June 19 and 20 2008 has been organised by the University’s School of Health, in partnership with the Black Country Cardiovascular Network and West Midlands Stroke Research Network.
Event organiser Mary Rayner, Senior Lecturer at the School of Health, said: “The conference will highlight the key developments nationally and locally in acute/primary care and preventative care. We are pleased to welcome a variety of healthcare professionals who will discuss the latest innovations in stroke services.”
The keynote speakers will be Professor Roger Boyle CBE, National Director for Heart Disease and Stroke at the Department of Health, and Professor Tom Quinn, Co-Director of the Pre-hospital, Emergency and Cardiovascular Care Applied Research Group at Coventry University.
The event at the Mary Seacole Building at the Wolverhampton City Campus will also feature an exhibition of posters focused on best practice and a number of presentations by health experts.
