This research aims to develop a new method of teaching self-management skills after stroke.
At present it is not clear how best to organise NHS services so that patients can benefit from thrombectomy for stroke. The Institute of Heath Services, Newcastle University, has produced an online survey to understand the preferences of stroke survivors, their carers and the public on the future of stroke thrombectomy service organisation in the UK.
Following a stroke, some patients and their relatives describe dissatisfaction with the information they receive about the patient’s outlook for recovery. This study aims to create an intervention for stroke unit staff, which can help them better address the issue.
Small Vessel Disease (SVD) is a disease of the small blood vessels in the brain and can lead to stroke and dementia. At the moment, we don't know how to stop SVD developing, or how to treat it. This Lectureship aims to improve future clinical trials that aim to prevent SVD.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
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.
The results of a 3-year study into stroke patients and exercise was shared with funders, patients and carers at an event held in the Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester yesterday.
These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
This tells you what care should be provided after stroke. It is written for people with stroke and their carers. It's a short, easy to understand version of the detailed National Clinical Guideline for Stroke (5th edition), published by The Royal College of Physicians.
Stroke survivors, carers, family members and friends are experts in what it's like to experience and live with stroke. People affected by stroke are involved in many areas of our work, from helping to decide what research we fund, to collaborating with the researchers we fund on their studies. Find out how you can get involved to help shape stroke research in the future.
