Help Me Cry Again: A Post-stroke Case Study
Some of our past research participants who had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) reported an inability to cry after their injury. These participants had impaired emotion perception, and interestingly, reported crying for the first time after receiving a facial affect recognition intervention that was being studied. The facial affect recognition intervention elicits personal emotions, which may facilitate crying. This is a case study of a woman who could not cry after her stroke and was referred for facial affect recognition therapy.

Early Botulinum Toxin Injections for Spasticity Management Post-stroke: A Delphi-based Canadian Consensus
To create a Canadian consensus statement on early intervention with botulinum toxin-A (BoNTA) injections for spasticity post-stroke. Spasticity is commonly seen in the early weeks post-stroke; if left untreated in this early period, spasticity can lead to contractures and further disability. Literature review indicates that there are very few studies examining the benefits of early BoNTA intervention on spasticity and function post-stroke. Although physicians choose to inject BoNTA in the early period post-stroke to manage spasticity, it is not clear what some of the clinical parameters are that can be used to assist in de...

Quantifying Stroke Rehabilitation Dose-Response: A Systematic-Review and Meta-Analysis Using Active Dose
Stroke is a leading causes of long-term disability[1], often requiring rehabilitation to regain function[2]. While no consensus exists on how to optimize rehabilitation features, i.e. dose[3,4], evidence suggests a positive dose-response relationship with increased scheduled time and outcome[3,4,5]. Unfortunately, scheduled time[5], may not accurately reflect dose delivered to patients[6]. Our objective was to quantifying the magnitude of functional improvement with respect to active therapy time, a more accurate dose measure.

GETCare: Development of a Comprehensive Education and Training Program For Care-Partners Post-Stroke
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States, with spousal partners often filling a significant role as caregivers after loved ones return home. Without adequate resources, this new role can lead to increased burden and depression for care-partners, and decreased rehabilitation effectiveness for stroke survivors. Research suggests the quality and amount of education provided to care-partners is severely lacking and there is need for improved services and resources. The purpose of this project was to conduct a needs assessment, create the GETCare program, and gather stakeholder feedback in prepar...
