Canadian Stroke Survivors Weigh In

Stroke Survivors Bring Great Benefit to Shaping Research

Surviving a stroke is a really confusing experience (to say the least), and unless you have lived through it you can’t really understand the complexity of the situation you are faced with.  When I read about great work that is being done to give stroke survivors a better voice weighing in about what it was like and what would have helped them seek treatment faster I like to share it.   This is great work, and I think we need to do more of it!  As mentioned in this article,  better help certainly begins with better awareness.  The survivors also mentioned more access to care and overcoming those barriers to getting affordable stroke rehab is also needed.
