Spatial Neglect after Stroke: an Exploration of Patient Perspectives and Experiences



Open to Provincial Region


Lived Experience of Spatial Neglect Post-Stroke? Let’s work together!

Health Areas
Stroke, Other Diagnosis and Therapy, Health Services and Policy, Other Men’s Health, Neurological Rehabilitation, Stroke Rehabilitation, Other Older Adults, Other Women’s Health

Opportunity Purpose
This opportunity is for people with lived and living experience of spatial neglect to join our team in developing two grant proposals. We are a team of researchers and clinicians from Canada, Scotland, Ireland, and Australia specializing in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and neuropsychology, wanting to bring together a range of perspectives to map out an initial study exploring patient perspectives on spatial neglect post-stroke.

This initial patient partner opportunity will focus on developing two grant proposals. The grants will fund future research planning. We will plan how to bring people with lived and living experience of spatial neglect post-stroke together with researchers and clinicians to map out innovative research directions aligned to patient priorities and clinical needs. You will have the option of identifying how/where you would like to contribute in this grant writing stage (e.g., brainstorming, writing, editing) and how you’d like to be listed on the application (e.g., Research User Co-Lead or Team Member). If the proposals get funded, longer term engagement opportunities will emerge!

Seeking the patient perspective doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply entails a commitment to ask and listen. Patient advisors not only bring a valuable perspective but also share original ideas and unique skills. Including the patient and family perspective changes the conversation and aligns the team’s focus towards common goals.
