Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke
Stroke Research

Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke is currently funding almost £150,000 towards stroke research in Northern Ireland. The recipient of this funding is Dr Anna Gavin who is creating a Comprehensive Database for Stroke in Northern Ireland.

Dr Anna Gavin and her team want to create a database linking information together to tell us about the stroke journey of people in Northern Ireland..

This ambitious 2 year project aims to link multiple electronic data sources, which are routinely collected to produce accurate population based data on strokes occurring over the previous 5 years in NI. It would also form the basis for monitoring the patient pathway from acute care to long term. Such a database could also facilitate monitoring of the impact of changing risk factors in an ageing population.
