The RCN Foundation is working with the brain injury recovery charity SameYou, to call for applicants to develop an advanced practice education programme for nurses in the specialism of neurological rehabilitation, particularly aimed at those aged 18 to 40 years.

The aim of this pioneering new programme will be to enhance nurses’ skills and knowledge of neurological rehabilitation to support the mental, physical and cognitive needs of patients aged 18 to 40 years old from across the UK who have experienced an acquired brain injury (ABI) or stroke.

We are seeking to commission a higher education institution or equivalent to develop, deliver and evaluate the advanced practice neurological rehabilitation education programme for nurses. The programme will support nurses to become specialists in neurological rehabilitation, working at an advanced practice level in care for young patients who have experienced acquired brain injury (ABI) or stroke. This will span the NHS, independent non-NHS sector, and Health and Social Care throughout the UK.

The delivery of the education programme is for a pilot period of 1 year and with a start date of September 2020. For more information, including details on how to apply, please download the call for applications below.
