Stroke Nurse Leaders Symposium

This premier, annual, invitation-only event seeks to unite the most senior stroke nurse leaders from around Australia to network, exchange ideas, share best-practice world-class stroke education. It is the only national forum that facilitates the sharing of evidence-based practice amongst leading stroke nurse and stroke experts. 


Educational topics covered in the symposium comprise a range of high-level subjects directly relevant to the clinical practice of leading stroke nurses/Nurse Practitioners; including research, professional development, acute stroke management and pharmacology.


The SNLS (Stroke Nurse Leaders Symposium) is unique in that the small-group nature of the symposium and the considered programming enables attendees to meet in person, (for most, this symposium is the only forum that allows this to occur), and freely exchange ideas and information and network with their peers. This symposium therefore equips attending nurses with expert knowledge and support that they can take back to their home units to better improve patient care in their individual facilities.


Thanks to our corporate sponsors, this one-of-a-kind event is free for invited nurses to attend and is lauded as the premier Australian stroke nurse meeting of the year.


SNLS 2022


November 25th 2022 sees the return to our in person Stroke Nurse Leaders Symposium in Sydney, NSW. The View Hotel in North Sydney is the venue for this invitation only event complete with stunning views of Sydney Harbour.


We have an array of speakers covering tricky clinical cases and management of stroke and TIA. Our invited speakers will highlight advances in the pharmacology of fibrinolytics in stroke, differentiating the dizzies in patients presenting with suspected stroke and visit the intricacies of the cerebral vasculature and how to interpret angiograms.


ASNEN is celebrating its 10th year and we are very pleased to welcome the exceptional Professor Sandy Middleton, one of the co-founders of ASNEN, to review where we have been, where we are now and where we are going!
