Nat Jones BISTRo study wins national award

Congratulations to Natalie Jones who won this year’s UK Stroke Forum’s Patient, Carer and Public Involvement Prize for her Breakfast Group Interventions in Stroke Rehabilitation (BISTRo) Study which was praised for including participatory research methods. Participatory research engages those who may not be trained in research but belong to or represent the interests of the people who are the focus of the research to ensure their voice is heard.

The Bistro study involved stroke survivors and their families in the study design and enabled those who would deliver and receive the intervention to co-produce a prototype intervention for testing in three Stroke Services in South Yorkshire. 

The prestigious Patient, Carer and Public Involvement Award was sponsored by a stroke survivor.
