Promoting stroke research in India
The study should help capacity development in management of stroke in India
The University of Central Lancashire has been awarded £1.9m from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to support further implementation of best practice stroke care in India. The three-year research project is led by the University and will be a collaborative effort with The George Institute for Global Health in Australia and India, CMC in Ludhiana, clinicians from three hospitals across India, and other key colleagues in the UK, India and Australia.
“This study should help capacity development in management of stroke in India with specific focus on strategies that impact better health outcomes for people suffering from stroke. A key component would be to increase the skills of Indians frontline workers in stroke care,” said Dr Pallab Maulik, deputy director, head of research, The George Institute for Global Health India
