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.

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.

Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.

Although speech and language therapists (SLTs) may help aphasia patients with their rehabilitation, there remains a clear lack of evidence-based treatments available for them to help their patients with problems of everyday talking, known as ‘discourse’.  This study aims to address both the need for evidence-based treatments and improvement of clinical expertise to address discourse problems after stroke.
