This study will identify ‘who’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ to treat people with painful shoulders after stroke more effectively, and should lead to better outcomes for them.
Made in collaboration with patients and staff, a goal-setting tool should be produced which is helpful to use on stroke rehabilitation units.
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2018 is currently on from 16-18 May in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first day of ESOC included some truly inspiring scientific sessions, including the WAKE-UP trial, RIGHT-2 trial and CROMIS-2 trials.
This year’s Winter School was attended by 21 trainees from across 11 countries. They took part in a jam-packed programme delivered by a wide range of experts in the field of stroke research, publication and communication.
People with stroke due to brain hemorrhage have swelling around the hemorrhage on their brain scan. This programme is about understanding the effect of blood on brain cells, with a focus on finding treatments.
People who have survived a previous stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) are at particularly high risk of subsequent, ‘recurrent’ stroke with 30% having another stroke in the following five years. High blood pressure is the most important reversible risk factor for having a recurrent stroke. The aim of this study is to develop and test a self-monitoring system of high blood pressure, tailored to the needs of stroke and TIA survivors, which will include self-adjustment of medication where possible in consultation with a GP.
This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovery.
This study will investigate whether early initiation of direct anticoagulant drugs will be as safe as later initiation in stroke patients with an abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). It will also investigate whether early initiation could lead to fewer recurrent strokes.
This study aims to address the need for evidence-based treatments and improve clinical expertise to address problems with everyday conversation after stroke.
