Representation of people with aphasia in randomized controlled trials of acute stroke interventions

VISTA Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aphasia affects up to a third of the stroke population and is associated with poor social participation and quality of life. Yet people with aphasia may be excluded from some types of stroke research due to challenges in informing, consenting, and conducting follow-up in this population. We described the representation of those with aphasia in acute stroke clinical research, the level of inclusion across international trial sites, and whether there have been improvements in the inclusion of this population in recent clinical trials.
