The Centre of Research Excellence in Stroke Rehabilitation and Brain Recovery invites you to a stimulating afternoon of conversations about living with stroke as a young person, and stroke research.

The program starts with Canadian researcher Sean Dukelow speaking on:

Using robotic technology to better understand and enhance stroke recovery.

Sean is an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Calgary and the Medical Director of Stroke Rehabilitation for the Calgary Stroke Program. He holds a PhD in Neuroscience and is a physician specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He came to the University of Calgary in October of 2008 where he founded the Stroke Robotics and Recovery laboratory. His laboratory currently he receives funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery and Alberta Innovates Health Solutions.

Next up will be snapshots of current research about young people who have had a stroke including:

  • Jessica Shipley – Unmet needs of young stroke survivors
  • Rosy Walters – Post-acute rehabilitation service use and outcomes for working age stroke (≤65 years) in Australia, UK and SE Asia: Data from the AVERT trial
  • Jessica Keating – Toward better services for young stroke survivors
  • Toni Withiel – Comparing approaches to memory rehabilitation following stroke
  • David Lawson – Telehealth delivery of memory rehabilitation following stroke: Is it as effective as face-to-face methods?
  • Barb Wolfenden – The impact of stroke on activity and participation during young and middle age.

Finally a panel of young stroke survivors will be hosted by Caleb Rixon (Genyus Network) in a ‘Q&A’ type session.

Afternoon tea will be provided.
