However, fundamental knowledge about risk factors is widely acknowledged to be missing, restricting mechanistic understanding, prevention, treatment, and patient services.
This study will recruit a wide range of patients with stroke to determine rates of, and risk factors for, cognitive and related impairments after stroke, to assess mechanisms and improve prediction models. Outputs will include reliable data on cognition long-term after stroke. We will seek consent to recontact participants and will then follow up to facilitate future clinical trials.
It is funded by the Stroke Association, British Heart Foundation, Alzheimer's Society and Dementias Platform UK.
