The SSEF consists of 16 Elements of Care, based on the quality markers in the National Stroke Strategy and related to the stroke strategies in all four UK countries.
Within each Element of Care there are key competencies that reflect the ‘knowledge and understanding’ and ‘skills and abilities’ a member of staff should possess if they work in that area of stroke care delivery. The SSEF is a freely available resource for anyone interested in stroke care to use.
