Posters and prizes at the UK Stroke Forum

Dr Rebecca Palmer with Big CACTUS poster

Three RAT group projects had posters at the UK Stroke forum held in Liverpool from the 1st-3rd December 2015. The Big CACTUS study had an on-going trials poster. The Big CACTUS study, led by Rebecca Palmer, is investigating the clinical and cost-effectiveness of aphasia computer therapy in the long term post-stroke. The study has recruited 180 participants so far and aims to recruit another 105 by July 2016. 

Mark Jayes Patient Carer and Public involvement prize
RAT group member Mark Jayes won the Patient Carer and Public Involvement prize for his poster about about the user-centred design of a toolkit to aid mental capacity assessment. This prize recognised the hard work and vital contribution of service users to the development of the toolkit.

Nasrin Nasr also had a poster about the novel use of narrative stories and forum theatre as methodologies to represent the experience of stroke.
