Stroke Foundation will provide more than $205,000 to eight Australian researchers, underpinning new research projects and supporting future leaders in stroke.

Projects funded included expanding the use of a smartphone app to improve communication between ambulance and hospital staff, research into sexuality after stroke, post-stroke fitness and how telehealth can deliver memory rehabilitation for stroke survivors.

Stroke Foundation Chief Executive Officer Sharon McGowan said high-quality research was vital to improving outcomes for Australian stroke patients.

“The Stroke Foundation is proud to support the delivery of new research into how stroke is treated and managed in Australia,” McGowan said.
