UK Early Researcher Award for Mrs Jane Horne, Stroke Association Postgraduate Fellow
In this edition we're celebrating the courage of stroke survivors, including people like Pete, who recently won a Life After Stroke Award. A severe stroke left Pete with the communication disability, aphasia, but it also changed his whole outlook on life. He now volunteers tirelessly to helps other people who've had their lives turned upside down by stroke.
The PRECIOUS project will examine the consequences of treating complications of stroke such as infections or fever or swallowing problems, all of which commonly occur in elderly patients. Failing to treat these complications often leads to a worse outcome overall.
