A response to reports in the news about small, early studies that make it look like the coronavirus may be causing strokes.
We’re partnering with Smooth Radio to let people know that we’re still here to support them to rebuild their lives after stroke during these difficult times.
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.
The Stroke Association is also a member of the Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE), a network of organisations that champion the voices of those affected by stroke. SAFE is currently involved in several European research projects. You can find out more about these projects hoping to improve treatment for stroke patients.
A statement from Juliet Bouverie, Chief Executive of the Stroke Association.
More than half (57%) of stroke survivors surveyed by the Stroke Association say their sex life has changed since their stroke – with a third saying they are now too scared to have sex.
We want to support the next generation of stroke research leaders to continue to improve stroke care and the lives of people affected by stroke in the years to come. We’re proud to introduce you to four researchers at the beginning of their careers who have recently been awarded Stroke Association research fellowships.
