Our knowledge brokerage events
Our round-table meetings bring together the many groups of people that are involved in and impacted by stroke research. This includes researchers, clinicians, stroke survivors, commissioners, policymakers and other funders. The events are for sharing knowledge and discussing the implications of research for health and social care policy and practice.
Our priority-setting workshops helped shape three priority areas for stroke research in our previous Research Strategy. They were haemorrhagic stroke, psychological consequences of stroke and vascular dementia. We funded a number of research awards on these themes.
