This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.
Made in collaboration with patients and staff, a goal-setting tool should be produced which is helpful to use on stroke rehabilitation units.
The number of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) has grown in the last few years. PROMs are questionnaires developed to accurately measure patients’ opinions about their health after an illness or during treatment. PROMs are used in both stroke research and routine stroke care.
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
This fellowship will involve the study of the human eye to find out about the health of the brain’s small blood vessels and nerve connections in people who have recently had a stroke.
The overall purpose of this research is to make laboratory stroke experiments more reliable and useful for informing how to design human clinical trials with a higher chance of success.
This research project aims to better understand how particular features of the CT scan can be used to make better treatment decisions for patients with ischaemic stroke, and whether we can accurately estimate the time since the stroke began.
The findings of this research could help provide stroke survivors and their relatives with more accurate information about what impacts they can expect over time and will help doctors and therapists identify which patients with visual neglect will benefit the most from new treatments.
People with stroke due to brain haemorrhage have swelling around the haemorrhage on their brain scan. More swelling worsens recovery. No treatment improves outcome after this swelling.
The programme will use biological information about cells and molecules, and information from patients, to design a study of treatment for swelling after brain haemorrhage.
Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.
