Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is the discharge of a stroke patient from hospital to their own home, co-ordinated by a team of therapists, nurses and a doctor. A number of ESD services have been set up across England. Do these services offer the same benefits to patients as those identified in clinical trials?
Your recovery from a stroke isn't limited to the time you spend in hospital. When you're ready to leave hospital, your stroke team will work with you to agree and arrange the support you need to continue your recovery at home.
Will my stroke treatment and support be different because of coronavirus (Covid-19)?
This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
This research looks to understand if a new technological device, the Neuroplatform, can improve arm and hand movement in stroke survivors at early stages of their recovery.
This project aims to find out if peer support can avert some of the adverse psychological consequences of aphasia: the language and communication disorder that affects about 15% of those who have a stroke. Stroke survivors with long-term aphasia will be trained as peer befrienders.

About one-third of stroke survivors are left with aphasia. This is a language disorder that disrupts the production and comprehension of speech, as well as reading and writing. This study will investigate whether a support group intervention can be delivered remotely to people with aphasia through a virtual island platform called Eva Park.
