We believe in the power of research evidence to prevent strokes, save lives and enable stroke survivors to make the best recovery possible.
As part of our five-year research strategy we made a commitment to working with others to achieve a clear vision about the future priorities for stroke research. We wanted to ensure that these priorities reflect expert opinion from practitioners and researchers as well as the views of stroke survivors and their families. Following a period of consultation with all of these groups we have now set our own priorities to address critical gaps in research evidence, including those that have proven hard to undertake in the past.
In 2015, we launched Priority Programmes in two areas, haemorrhagic stroke, and the psychological consequences of stroke.
Up to £450,000 over three to five years.
