Our knowledge brokerage events
Our events bring together the many groups of people that are involved in and impacted by stroke research to share knowledge and discuss research to tackle issues in health and social care policy, and practice and improve stroke care. This includes researchers and research organisations including funders, as well as people affected by stroke, clinicians and decision-makers including commissioners and policymakers.
Action on stroke research priorities
Our charity, in partnership with KTN, held the 'Action on stroke research priorities' event. The event invited industry, academia, clinicians, funding and supporting organisations with expertise in stroke research, innovation and care to share their knowledge and develop new collaborations and partnerships to address evidence uncertainties established in the Stroke Priority Setting Partnership.
Priority Programme Award Workshops
These workshops helped shape our Priority Programme Awards under our Research Strategy (2014 - 2019) that focused on research to improve treatment and care for haemorrhagic stroke, psychological consequences of stroke and vascular dementia. You can find out about the research awards on these themes.
