Site for Validation of Early Prognostic Data for Recovery Outcome after Stroke for Future, Higher Yield Trials (VERIFY)
The purpose of this research study is to understand how well we can predict your recovery by using tests done early after stroke. During the months after a stroke, some people recover all the way, some people don’t recover at all, and many people have a partial recovery. If we can predict how you will do in the coming months, we can choose the right rehabilitation therapies more quickly and more accurately.
Data will be collected during the acute hospitalization (in-person), at Day 30 (by phone), and at Day 90 (in person).
