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.
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.
‘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.
Published in the journal, BMJ Open, a new study explores what self management after stroke means to stroke survivors and physiotherapists.
Last week, our Stroke Training team delivered our Professional Masterclass in London, part of a series of masterclasses for professionals working in stroke.
The aim of this study is to develop a fatigue management programme to improve stroke survivors' knowledge of post stroke fatigue (PSF) and to identify ways of managing it.
A major collaborative research program has now been launched to develop new ways to support self-management by stroke survivors in their homes.
Our Stroke Recovery Service provides tailored support commencing in the acute hospital setting and continuing in homes, by addressing the long term practical, emotional and physical needs of stroke survivors and carers.
This research aims to develop a new method of teaching self-management skills after stroke by investigating how physiotherapists work with stroke survivors and carers.
This research project will design a healthy living programme for stroke survivors and their families and help people learn how to manage their own lifestyle risk factors.
