Opthalmology: Stroke & Vision Defects Study Phase 1 Validation
Project Member(s): Rose, K.
Funding or Partner Organisation: Agency for Clinical Innovation
Start year: 2015
Summary: The need for a simple clinical-based tool for the detection of visual deficits in patients with stroke, has been highlighted by evidence that such conditions are infrequently diagosed and therefore not incorporated into management and rehabilitation plans. This project aims to validate a vision screening tool for use by hospital-based health practitioners in stroke affected patients to identify pre-existing and stroke-related ocular conditions.
