SWOSN Professional Development Funds
Clinicians working in stroke care within the Southwestern Ontario Stroke Network (SWOSN) Region (Local Health Integration Networks I and II) can be funded up to $500 per fiscal year to support attendance at stroke related educational events which align with best practice. Please note that the educational opportunity must occur within the same fiscal year in order to be considered for funding. Continuing education applications will continue to be accepted until the allocated funds for that fiscal year are used up.

Group applications for learning opportunities or projects are welcome. If two or more individuals wish to participate in the same learning opportunity or project, a group application is preferred. Applications are the same as for the individual except that specific benefits for each member of the group and a clear role in sharing of the learning plan will be expected.

An application review committee reviews the funding applications. The committee will assess whether course content is supported by stroke best practice recommendations. Please note that the committee strives to ensure fair representation throughout the SWO Stroke Network Region when considering multiple applications. Final approval to fund the applicant is made by the SWOSN. The turnaround time for application review is approximately 8 weeks.
