The HSF Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR) has established a nine-member Stroke Community Advisory Committee of stroke survivors and care partners to vet research, inform clinical trials, liaise with the CPSR’s Knowledge Translation Advisory Committee and provide input on future scientific directions.

“We are putting into practice what other organizations have just started to think about,” says CPSR Executive Director Katie Lafferty. “It is clearly important to include the perspectives of stroke survivors and caregivers and we look forward to being exemplary in how we do that.”

Dr. Dale Corbett, Scientific Director and CEO of the CSPR, said: “We are so fortunate to have this group giving us their time, contributions and helping us to shape our research directions.”
