Abstract

In May of this year there was a “Round Table” conference, where specialists working in the area of rehabilitation for individuals following a stroke were brought together to discuss the current levels of investigations, published works and evidence based practice in care delivery. This resulting discussions identified concerns with the reporting accuracy and provision of replicatable data from the knowledge base on the subject, which also impacted on the validity and reliability of the current best practice guidelines available to practitioners. The outcome from these group identify the need to develop a greater level of clarity and transparency in the reporting of research to ensure programs designed to improve the therapy for individuals following a stroke are more robust and go further to inform practice into better guidelines for future care.
