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.

What happens when patients have the power?

There are 10 million stroke survivors a year. The power we could have if we DEMAND that our doctors actually DO SOMETHING about effective stroke rehab rather than just sitting on their asses. They should know exactly how to get us back to 100% recovery, NO excuses.  If all 10 million would not pay their doctors unless they fully recovered that might make change happen.

For decades, physicians have told patients what to do and wielded all the power in the relationship. In the past five years, that equation has been turned on its head. With the advent of digital health technologies and the focus on genomics and personalized medicine, patients have squarely placed themselves at the center of the conversation.
Dr. Eric Topol, who has been championing this disruptive change in medicine for years, will address this great inversion and the future of patient engagement at MedCity ENGAGE, being held October 18-19 in San Diego.
Topol, Director, and Professor of Genomics at Scripps Institute, is the indefatigable champion of empowering patients through digital health and has published two bestseller books on the future of medicine.
We invite you to hear him speak on Medicine's Great Inversion: how technology and patient-centered care will change the future of patient engagement and healthcare.
