Stroke rehabilitation at Midland
Rehabilitation can greatly improve a patient’s quality of life after a stroke. The research that we conduct at the St John of God Midland Private and Public Hospital aims to develop models of care that will ultimately help patients get their independence back and prepare them for life when they return home.
• Using state-of-the-art technology, developing a model of care that will enable us to predict the motor outcomes of stroke patients.
• A research study investigating the provision of the highest quality occupational therapy care to stroke patients.
• Trial of Exenatide in Acute Ischaemic stroke.
