The CanStroke Recovery Trials Platform began in 2017 with funding from Brain Canada and the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery. The network has clinical trial sites across Canada and includes some of the highest ranked principal investigators in the field of stroke recovery and rehabilitation research (e.g., Dr. Janice Eng, Dr. Robert Teasell, Dr. Mark Bayley, Dr. Marilyn MacKay Lyons, Dr. Michelle Ploughman, and Dr. Sean Dukelow). Team members from a mix of backgrounds including: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, and neuroscience. Over the last five years, CanStroke has trained more than 250 trainees, conducted several multi-site randomized controlled trials, and attracted national and international funding to run multi-centre pharmaceutical trials. The nature of Canstroke trials range from physical and cognitive therapies to technology and medication-based interventions. Trials networks in stroke recovery and rehabilitation are rare worldwide and the CanStroke team has established itself as a force to reckon with in the stroke recovery field.
