iHOPE is the National Stroke Association’s new stroke survivor and caregiver-focused online education program. iHOPE features a series of free topic-specific webinars and several “Ask the Experts” live online chats between attendees and webinar topic experts.
iHOPE is designed for stroke survivors, caregivers, family members and anyone else impacted by post-stroke issues. Ideally, anyone with a computer and Internet access can experience iHOPE anytime. Modeled after the popular in-person HOPE After Stroke program, which featured small, in-person meetings with topic discussion around post-stroke lifestyle and clinical issues, iHOPE provides access to the same valuable information and much more.
The program just launched in early March with two webinars and it will continue throughout 2010. Webinar topics for the program include:
- Explaining stroke
- Depression and emotions
- Rehabilitation at home
- Recurrent stroke prevention
