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.
This project aims to find out if peer support can avert some of the adverse psychological consequences of aphasia.
Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is the discharge of a stroke patient from hospital to their own home. Do these services offer the same benefits to patients as those identified in clinical trials?
