Module 2: Making Change Happen
In Module 2, using a combination of theory and practice, we explore the principles around advocacy; and how to identify what needs to change and what can be done to make it happen. You will develop an understanding around the decisions that affect stroke patients, the policy and health environment. You will also learn how to set and meet objectives as part of your advocacy strategy. At the end of each sub-module, you can test your knowledge with a simple activity or questionnaire.
