It provides a guide for stroke services and employers to develop local career development frameworks for the nursing workforce.

- Neurological Rehabilitation and Care (Online Learning) PgCert. This programme has been developed with funding from the RCN Foundation and in partnership with the charity SameYou.
The Neuroscience Forum has been a great link to other nurses working and interested in neurology. It's a great way to keep up to date with how nurses and their services are advancing, including sharing good practice. Working in a relatively small hospital, the forum has enabled me to reach out to colleagues across the whole country and I would recommend any nurse interested in neurology to utilise this resource.
