The Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research (ASR) is a leading research centre with an established record of addressing key, clinically relevant questions in elderly care and stroke. A programme of multidisciplinary health services research has been developed, facilitated by a strong and supportive network of local and national colleague researchers, NHS clinical staff, patients and their families and friends. Our research uses mixed-methods, incorporating qualitative, quantitative and health economic evaluations.
Making a difference
Working in collaboration with a range of regional and national partner organisations, we have developed a large programme of activities in implementing research into practice.
