Welcome to Module 5 Health and Care System Advocacy

Module 5: Health and Care System Advocacy

In Mod­ule 5, using a com­bi­na­tion of the­o­ry and prac­tice, SSOFT demon­strates how to gain an under­stand­ing of exist­ing health and care sys­tems, allow­ing the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of where key deci­sions are hap­pen­ing and who is mak­ing them.

Through a bet­ter under­stand­ing of these sys­tems Stroke Sup­port Organ­i­sa­tions (SSOs) can work with the key deci­sion mak­ers to advo­cate for improved stroke care, treat­ment and long-term support.

This can be achieved by using exist­ing evi­dence and data, as well as the voic­es of stroke survivors.
