Advances in Stroke Recovery

A unique forum designed to showcase innovation in the field of stroke recovery.  Sessions will highlight the latest research related to new technologies (including robotics), new approaches to stimulate brain recovery, and new clinical practices and approaches to maximize the benefits of rehabilitation. All those interested in stroke recovery are invited to attend this stimulating day-and-a-half meeting:  researchers, clinicians, therapists, students, policy-makers and those living with stroke. The objectives of the meeting are:

  • to showcase recent innovation in the field of stroke recovery, both within Canada and globally;
  • to identify potential new areas of research and forge research collaborations;
  • to provide an interactive environment that fosters lively discussion and debate related to approaches to stroke recovery; and
  • to provide trainees interested in stroke recovery a forum to showcase their work and learn from leaders in the field.

Advances in Stroke Recovery is hosted by the Heart and Stroke Foundation Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR).  This one-of-a-kind research partnership brings together leading Canadian researchers, research institutions, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation with the aim of restoring the lives of those affected by stroke.
