Evaluation of a new test to detect cognitive impairment in patients with small vessel disease stroke
A new study published in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry suggests that even relatively brief screening tools of cognitive assessment after stroke are associated with substantial incompletion for patients.
This research programme could substantially increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
No two strokes are alike - the damage from each stroke leaves its own unique signature on a person's brain and behaviour. The current project will investigate how different types of stroke affect a person's long term recovery or deterioration
This complete guide explains how a stroke can affect the way your brain understands, organises and stores information. It also talks about the kinds of problems this can cause and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke and their family and friends.
The aim of this research is to develop and test a simple yet widely-applicable outcome measure for evaluating cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Consultation with patients and carers will shape the design and content of the measure.
On December 5, 2014, Emma Patchick one of our Postgaduate Fellows, published a research paper online in the medical journal, Health Expectations.
Cognitive impairments after stroke can affect people’s confidence and mood as well as their ability to recover. PRECiS stands for ‘Patient-Reported Evaluation of Cognitive State’. It is a 27 item questionnaire tool, that measures the perceived impact of cognitive problems from the unique perspective of stroke survivors. Published open access in the journal
Does intensive blood pressure and cholesterol lowering prevent loss of cognition after stroke?
