Results Summary and Professional Abstract
|This project's final research report is expected to be available by October 2020.|
|Article Highlight: This study compared outcomes of older adults who have atrial fibrillation and have had a stroke. In a new paper published in JAMA Neurology, the research team reports that patients who were prescribed direct oral anticoagulants when discharged from the hospital following a stroke had relatively better outcomes—including more days at home and fewer adverse events—than patients prescribed the blood thinner warfarin. This reinforces findings from prior research on the subject.|
Results of This Project
JAMA Neurology Author Interviews
In an interview as part of the journal's "Author Interviews" series, Adrian F. Hernandez, MD, MHS, discusses what prompted him to launch the study, and what’s new and additive about this study. He notes that it’s one of the largest studies with its focus, and that it enrolled many older patients who have not traditionally been enrolled in studies with this focus.
Finding the Keys to a Longer, Better Life after Stroke
A feature story on this project that looks at how patients who have a stroke often receive medications to prevent a recurrence. Researchers are using medical records and new patient-reported data to examine the benefits and risks of these treatments.
PROSPER Study for Stroke Survivors and Their Families
Adrian F. Hernandez, MD, MHS, associate director at the Duke Clinical Research Institute and Principal Investigator for PROSPER (Patient-Centered Research into Outcomes Stroke Patients Prefer and Effectiveness Research) talks about the study and its impact on the stroke survivor community.
The Peer-Review Summary for this project will be posted here soon.
