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.

Peer review

I'm sure I'm doing reviews of research completely wrong. I bet swearing is not allowed.  I'm sure I'm not considered a peer of any stroke researcher and thus should be quiet.

In 2015, BioMed Central launched a blog series on peer review for beginners, covering issues such as how to evaluate whether you should take on a particular review, how to approach the review, and how to re-review.
The BMJ has produced a training package of Powerpoint presentations and practice reviews.
The Canadian Institute of Health and Gender has designed this online course to help researchers and peer reviewers account for sex and gender in biomedical research in humans, animals, tissues, and cells.
The Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group CEVG@US Project and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health collaborated on this free online course for peer reviewers. This 12-lecture series explains the basics of critical appraisal and how to translate your appraisal into a useful review.
The Committee on Publication Ethics published its first ethical guidelines for peer reviewers in 2013, detailing peer reviewers’ responsibilities at all stages of the review process.
