Today, the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) launched a new spotlight report highlighting the positive difference medical research charities are making for mental health patients across the UK.
This study will investigate whether early initiation of direct anticoagulant drugs will be as safe as later initiation in stroke patients with an abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). It will also investigate whether early initation could lead to fewer recurrent strokes.
This study will investigate how other illnesses can affect stroke treatment and outcome. It will involve the analysis of electronic, linked datasets of health information from stroke patients in Scotland.
We are a proud partner in the National Prevention Research Initiative (NPRI), a partnership of 16 health research funders including government departments, research councils and medical charities. Launched today, a new report sheds light on the NPRI's fresh approach to preventing ill health.

The Stroke Association is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC). Published today, the AMRC have launched a new booklet outling highlighting how vital health information is to enable researchers to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and improve care.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, and published in the International Journal of Stroke, research suggests a new tool can better predict what level of memory and thinking (cognitive) problems patients will experience after stroke, than more time consuming methods.
