Research

Get involved in research projects

Survivors of stroke, families, carers and the community are central to stroke research. You can:

  • help direct research as part of the project team
  • share your views and experience
  • test new treatments to find out what works,

Getting involved in research may sometimes also allow you to access emerging therapy you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get. Involvement may also be part of your stroke recovery plan.

Stroke Foundation has an e-learning module to help you work well with stroke researchers.
