Welcome to PARAS

This website provides detailed training and tools for the delivery of PARAS within different stroke services.

The PARAS programme is designed to be delivered as part of current stroke rehabilitation and to be used flexibly around the needs of individual patients and stroke services.

The training has been designed to fit around your clinical demands. You can pause and re-watch parts of the videos and related tools can be found next to each video. For guidance the initial training will take approximately two hours. After delivering PARAS, you can refer back to the training and use the reflection and evaluation to evaluate your progress and development needs.

After completing this training and trialling PARAS in practice, Sarah and the PARAS team would like to know your thoughts.

Please complete our evaluation so we can understand if we need to make any further adjustments to PARAS.
