This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
This research will investigate the use of orthitics (for example, braces and splints) early on in a stroke survivor’s rehabilitation. The results will inform a larger study into early orthotic use after stroke.

MAGIC aims to discover innovative approaches to post-stroke care based on Information Communications Technology (ICT) solutions.
The number of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) has grown in the last few years. PROMs are questionnaires developed to accurately measure patients’ opinions about their health after an illness or during treatment. PROMs are used in both stroke research and routine stroke care.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
Stroke research receives a fraction of the funding relative to its devastating effects. The Stroke Association’s investment in stroke research has helped to establish a vibrant community of stroke researchers in the UK. This continues to change the lives of those affected by stroke through high-quality research.
Fatigue is common after stroke, but there’s currently a lack of treatment available for fatigue after stroke. This research will create a fatigue management programme designed to support stroke survivors to self-manage their fatigue.
