Neurovascular risk factor management through a nurse-led clinic


Southern Health and Social Care Trust

Type: Report - practice
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland

This nurse led clinic targets all people who have had a transient ischaemic attack (TIA, mini stroke) or who have been assessed at the medical neurovascular clinic. This nurse-led clinic is open for any discipline to refer.
People who have had a TIA can also self refer. At this clinic I advise individuals and their families on the modifiable risk factors for stroke and together we put in place strategies to deal with each individual risk factor and work through any lifestyle issues. The clinic runs once to twice weekly depending on demand. If required I have immediate access to medical staff. I also refer to other disciplines within the hospital and community setting and liase with GPs. I review individuals until I feel their risk factors are controlled and the person is confident to continue without support. Each individual who attends this clinic is given the contact number of the Nurse Specialist for Stroke for the telephone advice line.
