Stroke Specialist Nurse at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals
Joe’s current role is based in community providing follow-up for stroke patients after discharge from hospital. He is responsible for ensuring good secondary prevention and stroke education, managing post-stroke complications and undertaking 6 week and 6-month stroke reviews. Alongside his role as a specialist nurse Joe is undertaking a PhD research project that focuses on the use of advanced nursing roles within stroke services. He also guest lectures at the University of Sheffield. It is hoped that this will enable him to establish a career as a clinical academic that embeds research into his clinical role. His areas of interest are secondary prevention, sexual health and workforce development.
