We need people who have had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) to help researchers make new discoveries. You will help us to find new ways to prevent strokes, and to advance stroke and TIA rehabilitation and recovery.
Below, you can join a list of people with stroke or TIA who will be contacted when researchers need people to participate in important research.
We need people who have had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) to help researchers make new discoveries.
If you register, you will join a list of people with stroke or TIA who are interested in volunteering for research studies. By joining the register, you will be contacted when researchers need people like yourself to participate in important research.
Your participation will help us to find new ways to prevent strokes, and to advance stroke and TIA rehabilitation and recovery, here in the Hunter and around the world.
Where is the Register operating?
The Register will be operating within John Hunter Hospital Acute Stroke Ward, Rankin Park Rehabilitation Centre, Stroke/TIA clinic and the Community Stroke Team by:
- A/Prof Coralie English, Priority Research Centre and University of Newcastle
- A/Prof Rohan Walker, University of Newcastle
- Prof Michael Nilsson, Hunter Medical Research Institute
- A/Prof Michal Pollack, Hunter Stroke Service
- Ms Monique Hourn, Hunter Stroke Service
- Ms Gillian Mason, University of Newcastle
Who can participate in the research?
People who have had a stroke or tIA who are willing to add their contact information to a Register, and are willing to be contacted about research at a later date.
What would you be asked to do if you agree to participate?
If you agree to participate in this study, you will be asked to sign the Participant Consent Form. You will then be asked to provide contact information for you, your carer (if you have one) and information about the date and type of TIA or stroke you suffered (bleed or blockage).
Your contact details will then be added to the Register. The Register Coordinator may contact you at a later date if a suitable clinical trial for stroke arises that may be of interest for you. Until such a time, there is nothing else you need to do.
