To so many of us, research is important because it's about change.
We believe in the power of research to save lives, prevent stroke and ensure people make the best recovery they can.
Research funded by the Stroke Association has the ultimate aim of making stroke a preventable and treatable disease, and improving the quality of life for people affected by stroke.
Stroke can be devastating. Whilst physical impairment after a stroke may be easily seen and diagnosed, the psychological effects of stroke often remain hidden, may go unrecognised by some healthcare professionals, with the true impact remaining unknown.
The Stroke Association held this workshop to set the priorities for research into the psychological consequences of stroke in the UK.
