Speech therapy after stroke: caution is needed

Professor Pam Enderby
Professor Pam Enderby, writing on behalf of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists recently had a letter published in the British Medical Journal entitled: Speech therapy after stroke - Caution is needed in extrapolating results of randomised controlled trial.

The letter comments on the ACT NoW randomised controlled trial, stating that its results should not be misinterpreted to remove speech and language therapy from the early stage of the stroke rehabilitation pathway as this treatment is highly valued by those who have experienced stroke.
