Nurses are the largest group of health professionals working with stroke survivors. However, there is little evidence describing their specific role in stroke rehabilitation.
On December 5, 2014, Emma Patchick one of our Postgaduate Fellows, published a research paper online in the medical journal, Health Expectations.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
A new report published today shows that stroke research remains severely underfunded compared to the devastating impact it has on people’s lives. The UK Health Research Analysis 2018 also shows stroke research receives much less funding than many other areas of health research.
About 80% of strokes are caused by a blocked blood vessel. One third of these patients have a blockage of a large blood vessel in the neck or brain known as large artery occlusion stroke (LAOS).
As part of a new research strategy we are committing ourselves to building the next generation of research leaders. Over the next few years we will support 15 Stroke Association Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader positions.
