The Stroke Recovery Association is often approached by researchers looking for study participants.
People affected by Stroke can derive benefit from participation in research projects. And by taking part, you would be contributing to a greater understanding of Stroke, or to the development of more effective treatments.
In some cases, research projects may provide access to new interventions before they are widely available. Even if participating in the research does not provide any benefit for you as an individual, it may provide benefits for other people who have a Stroke in the future. You are likely to benefit from the additional support and attention provided by clinical trial staff, who will have a thorough understanding of the issues and concerns related to Stroke.
All research requests are vetted by our Board to ensure they have ethics approval and will be of benefit to the participants and all stroke-affected people. Bona fide research projects by reputable bodies are supported by the Association.
