A pilot study for developing and evaluating a care pathway for cognitive problems after stroke
The aim of this research is to develop and test a simple yet widely-applicable outcome measure for evaluating cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Consultation with patients and carers will shape the design and content of the measure.
Comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke
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.
