We have put together this information on stroke and coronavirus (COVID-19) in partnership with NHS England. It is for all stroke survivors in the UK.
Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, we are currently suspending new prevention event registrations and materials orders. We will share more information here in the coming days.
We want to support the next generation of stroke research leaders to continue to improve stroke care and the lives of people affected by stroke in the years to come. We’re proud to introduce you to four researchers at the beginning of their careers who have recently been awarded Stroke Association research fellowships.
We’re now funding stroke research in every nation of the UK. Come with us on a trip around Britain, to explore some of the projects aiming to improve people’s lives after stroke.
Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery. Previously known as our Keynote Lecture, our event took place on Wednesday, 15 May 2019, at the Science Museum in central London.
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.
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.
Anxiety and depression are common after a stroke. Mindfulness is becoming an increasingly popular way for people to manage their psychological health. This study aims to refine and test a mindfulness course specifically designed for people affected by stroke.
In January, NHS England announced their Long Term Plan, in which stroke has been named as a new national priority. It also includes sections on both stroke care as well as cardiovascular disease.
‘Supported self-management’ is the help and support offered to stroke survivors and their families after they have left hospital. This research will look at what does and doesn’t work to help stroke survivors and their families to self-manage.
