Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.
This project aims to develop and test a repetitive functional task practice (RFTP) therapy programme. Research physiotherapists will develop the programme in conjunction with stroke unit staff and patients.
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.
The findings of this research could help provide stroke survivors and their relatives with more accurate information about what impacts they can expect over time, and will help doctors and therapists identify which patients with visual neglect will benefit the most from new treatments.
Functional, cognitive and emotional outcomes after Transient Ischemic Attack: A prospective, controlled cohort study to inform future rehabilitative interventions (FACE TIA).
Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
This guide talks about some common problems that can happen because of this and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke.
Information about the physical effects of stroke, such as swallowing difficulties, continence problems, pain and headaches.
This study will test arm training to encourage a functionally useful contribution to recovery from the side of the brain unaffected by stroke (the 'non-stroke hemisphere'), and whether this is only possible early after stroke.
