Made in collaboration with patients and staff, a goal-setting tool should be produced which is helpful to use on stroke rehabilitation units.
Following a stroke, some patients and their relatives describe dissatisfaction with the information they receive about the patient’s outlook for recovery. This study aims to create an intervention for stroke unit staff, which can help them better address the issue.
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.
Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
Last week, our lecturers attended two training days at our head office, at Stroke Association House, London. These form part of a schedule of activity designed to ensure they have the skills, and support needed to succeed in becoming the next generation of research leaders.
Two articles published from the Nottingham Fatigue After Stroke (NOTFAST) study shed light on having fatigue six months after having a stroke.
The results of a 3-year study into stroke patients and exercise was shared with funders, patients and carers at an event held in the Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester yesterday.
Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex. Some of our researchers spoke at the event, sharing important insights into key areas of stroke research. There was also a stand showcasing our EVA Park project, which aims to help stroke survivors with aphasia regain communication skills and confidence.
Today, we held an exciting day of training for our early-career researchers about Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in stroke research. The day was chaired by Laura Piercy, our Research Engagement Officer.
