On February 24, 2023 we held our first in-person research symposium in the RCSI Education and Research Centre at Beaumont Hospital. We were greatly privileged to join leading clinicians who work in the field of stroke nationally to discuss updates on current stroke services and future plans in stroke care nationally.
The scholars hosted a “design sprint” session which used a design-thinking approach to encourage creative solutions to challenges faced providing consistent and co-ordinated patient centred stroke care and services.
The design sprint was a wonderful creative collaboration and generated lots of ideas and thoughtful contributions. We will collate all of the ideas and and consider and prioritise them in partnership with our PPI partners. We hope this session will inform a pathway that leads to improved patient experiences as well as better patient outcomes.
We are so grateful to everyone who participated!
Below are some photos of the speakers, guests and of the design sprint.
