October 20-22, 2018 | Mont Saint-Saveur, Québec, Canada
*participation by invitation only
The first Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable (SRRR), held in Philadelphia 2016, was a major international collaborative effort that set the scene for a new direction for recovery research. This collaboration demonstrated that the international community is united and moving forward in the search for game changing treatments to achieve major gains in stroke recovery. The group's five consensus statements, published in International Journal of Stroke and re-printed in Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair are available for free download http://journals.sagepub.com/page/wso/srrr.
Leveraging the current momentum, the second Roundtable meeting, will focus on the following key areas:
- Knowledge translation: chaired by Prof Janice Eng, Canada
- Cognition: chaired by Dr Andrew Clarkson, New Zealand
- Kinetic and kinematic biomechanical measurement: chaired by Prof Gert Kwakkel, Netherlands
- Collective development of international clinical trials and methodologies: co-chaired by Prof Julie Bernhardt, Australia, and Prof Steve Cramer, USA
The Second Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable, a by invitation only meeting, will be held immediately following the World Stroke Congress on October 20-22, 2018 in Mont Saint-Saveur, Québec, Canada.
