National information

Find your national stroke group

Stroke is a massive burden that leaves the patients and their relatives in a state of shock and disorientation. Stroke groups help the parties involved to cope with this new and often frightening situation. Beside support of research projects and medical education these groups offer information, practical advice and assist in finding local support, next to the patient’s hometown.
