World Stroke Academy (WSA)

Welcome to the World Stroke Academy


The WSA is the e-learning portal for the World Stroke Organization. It provides regularly updated stroke educational material.  It is delivered by means of a dynamic, and award winning, online e-learning platform designed for healthcare professionals caring for people with stroke.  The material is available in a variety of easy-to use formats (webcasts, e-learning CME modules, mini-lectures, etc.). The content covers a wide range of topics relevant to all levels of expertise and health care settings.

The WSA content is created by members of the WSO and published by a team of experts in stroke and education chaired by a world leader in stroke education, Prof. Michael Brainin. To access the World Stroke Academy portal, please click here
