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.

$100,000 Hearst Health Prize for Excellence in Population Health

Our great stroke association would apply for this after setting up and executing a strategy to get all stroke patients to 100% recovery. 
http://www.jefferson.edu/university/population-health/population-health-innovation/hearst-health-prize.html
Population health is essential to transforming from an illness-centered healthcare system to one focused on protecting and improving health. We created this prize to help identify and promote promising ideas in the field that help to improve health outcomes, and thus proliferate best practices more rapidly. Our goal is to discover, support and showcase the work of an individual, group, organization or institution that has successfully implemented a population health program or intervention that has made a measurable difference. The results of successful programs are expressed in terms of actual improvements in health outcomes and/or health behaviors, not just financial measures, clinical process measures, or measures of participation.
The Winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize, and up to two Finalists will each receive a $25,000  cash prize, in recognition of outstanding achievement in managing or improving population health. This is not a grant program.
