The Stroke Association is pleased to support the AllTrials campaign and has signed the petition for all clinical trials to be registered and published.
On Monday 16th June the Stroke Association were invited to share how research we funded has changed lives at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Medical Research Summer Reception, entitled, "A Healthy Future for UK Medical Research".
Our recent survey of stroke survivors suggests that over 80% of them have a physical disability after stroke, and 38% of those who said their disability was severe also said that their physiotherapy was poor or very poor.
Our round-table meetings aim to share knowledge arising from our funded research and create debate about the implications for health and social care policy and practice.
Stroke is a global epidemic, in the UK alone someone will have a stroke every 3 and a half minutes.
Our 5 year research strategy demonstrates where our vision lies and how we aim to get there.
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
More than half (57%) of stroke survivors surveyed by the Stroke Association say their sex life has changed since their stroke – with a third saying they are now too scared to have sex. Sex and relationships play a vital role in helping stroke survivors to rebuild their lives and this Valentine’s Day we want more people to talk about this sensitive and important issue.
A new report published today shows that stroke research remains severely underfunded compared to the devastating impact it has on people’s lives. The UK Health Research Analysis 2018 also shows stroke research receives much less funding than many other areas of health research.
