Stroke Rehabilitation Theme

NEW OCT 2013: See the latest news from our Stroke Rehabilitation theme

Our Stroke Rehabilitation theme aims to increase the capacity of the stroke rehabilitation community to engage with and apply research findings. In doing this, we hope to produce an improvement in the delivery of care and evidence based stroke rehabilitation services for all stroke survivors.

The theme is led by Professor Marion Walker. For more information on the Stroke Rehabilitation theme and its work, please contact the Project Manager, Hazel Sayers. Projects within the theme include:

This study is promoting the use of recommendations, derived from research findings on Early Supported Discharge (ESD) services for stroke patients, in clinical practice and facilitating the implementation of evidence based Early Supported Discharge services.
