Aphasia Priorities

Aphasia Research Priorities

Lead: Sue Franklin
Team: Dearbhla Harhen, Michelle Hayes, Sasha McManus, Alex Pollock

A previous priority setting partnership with the James Lind Alliance identified the top ten research priorities for life after stroke. Aphasia-related issues feaured twice in this top ten list. The current aphasia research priority project expands on this earlier work to examine more closely the research priorities specific to the field of aphasia.

Initiated in October 2014, this project uses the same priority setting methodology outlined by the James Lind Alliance.

These aphasia research priorites have been identified; findings have been disseminated at research conferences, and are currently in preparation for publication.
