This project aims to develop and test a repetitive functional task practice (RFTP) therapy programme. Research physiotherapists will develop the programme in conjunction with stroke unit staff and patients.
‘Invisible impairments’ can make it difficult for stroke survivors to maintain a job, according to a study from the University of Cambridge and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
A pilot study for developing and evaluating a care pathway for cognitive problems after stroke
We are funding the KeMIST (Kent Medicine Support in Stroke and TIA) trial, which will use the views of stroke and Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) survivors to design a life-long medicines support service which will be provided by pharmacists. The KeMIST trial researchers are holding an open event to support the trial between 2pm and 4pm on Friday 25 November 2016.
Local stroke survivors have joined in a new stroke research program at the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Centre in Bromsgrove on Monday 05 September. STARR (stroke, technology and risk reduction) is a new research program, which will help stroke survivors manage their risk factors for recurrent stroke: a stroke that happens after someone has their first stroke.

This research is about bleeding (haemorrhage) in the brain caused by bursting (rupture) of an abnormal swelling (aneurysm) – causing a devastating form of stroke known as subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH).
Two articles published from the Nottingham Fatigue After Stroke (NOTFAST) study shed light on having fatigue six months after having a stroke.
