Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

$200,000 boost for stroke rehab Projects at NHW to help patient recovery

I bet they didn't ask for guaranteed results from getting this money. Probably just more guidelines and processes. I hate to be the stick in the mud, but almost all additional funding for stroke never addresses the correct problems.

STROKE patients at Northeast Health Wangaratta are set to benefit from more therapy options thanks to $200,000 in State Government funding.
The funding was announced last week by Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria), with $144,000 to go towards implementing an Early Supported Discharge project over 18 months, and another $54,000 to go towards the Thomas Hogan Centre rehabilitation service.
“These are two very exciting projects being undertaken by NHW and the State Government is proud to be supporting such positive initiatives that will improve(not result in improved recovery)  patient recovery from stroke,” Ms Symes said.
“The government is putting patients first and ensuring stroke survivors can access the very best care, when they need it, closer to home. Note the weasel word, care, not results.
“Stroke survivors in Wangaratta will benefit from rehabilitation services that will enable them to enjoy a better quality of life.”
