Patient Recruitment for Stroke Clinical Trials

Yesterday I mentioned that NINDS, through NIH is continuously researching and performing clinical trials on people that have had a stroke – hopefully finding something that would present another stroke! The scientists that conduct the studies work to develop new and better ways to help the human brain repair itself; help it to restore its important functions.

With new advances in imaging and new rehabilitation processes, the researchers have concluded that the brain is able to compensate for lost functions as a result of a stroke.

If your clients or loved ones have had a stroke and would like to be a part of these important studies, there are several places that research is currently being conducted. I am including NINDS’s list below:

If you believe that you are close enough to get your client into these trials, it would be the best way for you to demonstrate to them that With Age Comes Respect. Of course there are time considerations and the like, but you could speak to family members to get their consent and then contact the nearest study and see if you could get your client involved. The more people involved, hopefully the closer we are to getting better answers for those we care about now and in the future!
