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 aged 18 to 55: How do you want your needs to be addressed? Tell researchers from @TheFlorey in this 20-30 min survey:

  • Why is this even being asked? 100% recovery is the goal, nothing less. Stop with the tyranny of low expectations.

    Addressing the Needs of Young Stroke Survivors


  • Participant Information and Consent Form
    This questionnaire has been designed to collect information from young (aged 18-55) stroke survivors about their needs and how they would like their needs to be met. This information will help to guide the development of healthcare systems for young people with stroke.
  • The questionnaire has three sections:
    1. Describe yourself
    2. Identify your stroke-related needs
    3. Tell us how you want your needs to be met
    You can complete as little or as much of this questionnaire as you wish. It should take 20 to 30 minutes to complete. You can complete this questionnaire with help from someone who knows you well.
  • Participation in this research is voluntary. If you don’t wish to take part, you don’t have to. You can stop responding at any time and cancel your answers by exiting your browser. Please note that, once your answers are submitted on the final page of the survey, we cannot delete your information from our database because the survey is anonymous.
    Some of the questions in this questionnaire may be personal in nature. If there is anything in the questionnaire that causes you any distress, please discuss your concerns with someone you trust—perhaps a family member, friend, or your General Practitioner.
