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.

Stroke survivors odds improve at Werribee Mercy - Werribee VIC 3030, Australia

The funding would be better spent analyzing these 177 hyperacute possibilities to see which ones would be most helpful in getting survivors better recovered. But no they go down the failed rehab route where only 10% get fully recovered.
So call that hospital and ask why they are going down the failed rehab silo route.

Expert research and the evidence it uncovered have led to a funding boost for rehabilitation services for stroke survivors at Werribee Mercy.
A state government grant of $90,000 will fund improvements at the hospital, which health services chief executive Dr Linda Mellors said would be most welcome.
“The funding will allow us to appoint a project officer to improve evidence-based practice in the community based rehabilitation program,” she said.
“This will include working with allied health assistants to increase the intensity of rehabilitation sessions for stroke survivors.”
She said a framework developed by the Stroke Foundation three years ago found higher intensity therapy improves client, and service, outcomes.
Health Minister and Altona MP Jill Hennessy said the state government is supporting the hospital to be at the forefront of the latest advances and world’s best practice in stroke rehabilitation.
Werribee MP Tim Pallas said the hospital will now be able to provide “the best possible care to stroke survivors”, giving them a better quality of life.
About one in six people will suffer a stroke. In 2014, 2954 Victorians died from the disease. Strokes cause more deaths than breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.

Ballot’s ‘in the mail’
Voters should check the mail for their ballot packs for Wyndham council elections from later this week. Electoral returning officer Heidi Burnell is encouraging people to vote as early as possible. Ballot papers must be posted or hand delivered to the election office by 6pm, Friday, October 21, or they will not be counted. Voters who haven’t received their ballot pack by October 12 should call 8619 1952 during business hours to arrange a replacement.
More maternity ward funds
Werribee Mercy Hospital has received $65,000 from the state government to ensure the right systems are in place to deliver a higher quality and safer maternity care. The funding has been forthcoming after a review of stillbirths and newborn deaths at Djerriwarrh Health Services.
Local grants given out
Thirty-four community groups across Wyndham have received a share of $30,000 from developers Cedar Woods as part of its neighbourhood grants scheme. Among those receiving a share of the bounty were Weerama Festival Committee, Wyndham Relay for Life, Williams Landing Sports Club and Laverton Swimming Club.
