We are committed to producing clear, accurate and unbiased information for stroke survivors and their families and friends. Our publications cover a breadth of information which can include details of medical procedures and drugs; rehabilitation therapies; health promotion; statistics; regulations; and contact details for useful organisations.
We do not conduct in depth research ourselves, but rely on professional bodies and other reliable sources to produce our information. These include:
- organisations such as the Royal College of Physicians who produce Guidelines for care after stroke and Transient Ischaemic Attack
- reputable summaries of evidence-based research such as from the Cochrane Library or NHS Clinical Knowledge Summaries
- reputable medical journals subscribed to by The Stroke Association for example BMJ, The Lancet, Stroke and Clinical Rehabilitation
- reputable medical text books such as the British Medical Association’s New Guide to Medicines and Drugs and The Merck Manuals series.
As each leaflet, factsheet or resource sheet is reviewed, a referenced version of the publication will be listed on this page for download. If you have any comments or questions about these references, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
