Project Details

Project Description

Our ambition is to improve stroke care in India. We will create a Global Health Research Group (GHRG) that will focus on addressing priorities in stroke care in India via high quality research. We will demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach by conducting an innovative and co-designed study of stroke care initiated in acute hospital settings. To deliver this we will:
•Create a partnership of clinicians, academics, patients and the public in India to develop research capacity to support innovation in healthcare in order to improve the management of stroke
•Develop effective ways of working together to prioritise, develop, deliver and implement research
•Engage with key stakeholders in healthcare in India to ensure that our research is relevant, important, accessible and practically focused
•Build sustainability for health research by supporting people and organisations to develop research,
by building systems to facilitate research, and by capturing funding to support work to continue beyond the end of the project
•Identify key transferable knowledge for potential implementation in other settings and relevant health conditions.
