Visit to the Stiftung Deutsche Schlaganfall-Hilfe (German Stroke Foundation)

2019/05/27 The German Stroke Foundation has been supporting our project from the start as associated partner. Thus we were very excited to meet and exchange ideas with our colleagues from the „StrokeOWL“ project – which is pioneering in the use of stroke-pilots.

Important points in this intellectual exchange were the experiences gained from already active stroke-pilots as well as an examination of difficulties and opportunities concerning the technical support of stroke-pilots. Furthermore scientific aspects regarding the study-evaluation and training of stroke-pilots could be discussed.

We want to thank the German Stroke Foundation and hope to meet them again soon in Leipzig!

Guest appearance at the info session „Kopfsache“

2019/05/22 On May 22nd, 2019 we gladly followed an invitation to the info session „Kopfsache“, which is held three times a year at the FAW (Fortbildungsakademie der Wirtschaft) in Leipzig. Declared aim of this networking event is the intellectual exchange amongst patients, medical care professionals and interested individuals involved in the care of people with acquired brain damage.

In the course of a short presentation we were given the opportunity to present the PostStroke-Manager project and to discuss some aspects with the audience. Furthermore we were able to connect with therapists and other care workers and to discuss a whole range of questions with affected patients, which in turn will help to make the PostStroke-Manager patient-oriented from the start.

We want to thank everyone who took part in the event. We learned a great deal from those questions, which will be directly integrated back into the conceptualisation of our system.
