What maintains stroke survivors’ continued use of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia?
The number of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) has grown in the last few years. PROMs are questionnaires developed to accurately measure patients’ opinions about their health after an illness or during treatment. PROMs are used in both stroke research and routine stroke care.
How important is the relationship between therapist and stroke survivor in rehabilitation of language ability?

Southampton Stroke Health Promotion and Engagement works directly with members of the public to disseminate health promotion messages and raise awareness of stroke, including how to prevent a stroke, the effects of stroke and how to recognise a stroke (FAST).
New research from Stroke Association Fellow, Dr Anna Kuppuswamy, suggests that feelings of limb heaviness after stroke are not related to actual muscle weakness.
Published in the journal, BMJ Open, a new study explores what self management after stroke means to stroke survivors and physiotherapists.
The aim of this study is to develop a fatigue management programme to improve stroke survivors' knowledge of post stroke fatigue (PSF) and to identify ways of managing it.
People with stroke due to brain haemorrhage have swelling around the haemorrhage on their brain scan. More swelling worsens recovery. No treatment improves outcome after this swelling.
The programme will use biological information about cells and molecules, and information from patients, to design a study of treatment for swelling after brain haemorrhage.
