Moving rehabilitation research forward: Developing consensus statements for rehabilitation and recovery research
Stroke recovery is the next frontier in stroke medicine. While growth in rehabilitation and recovery research is exponential, a number of barriers hamper our ability to rapidly progress the field. Standardized terminology is absent in both animal and human research, methods are poorly described, recovery biomarkers are not well defined, and we lack consistent timeframes or measures to examine outcomes.
I’m Carmen Lahiff-Jenkins Managing Editor of the International Journal of Stroke and I spoke to Professor Julie Bernhardt who is a leading global stroke rehabilitation researcher and driving the consensus project and junior faculty member Dr Karen Borschmann.
You can find the first publication from the consensus Moving rehabilitation research forward: Developing consensus statements for rehabilitation and recovery research on line published with IJS.
