Research without borders: fostering innovative clinical research and implementation.


Journal Article

Stroke remains one of the major killers worldwide. Addressing this epidemic will require combined efforts of researchers (bench, translational, clinical, epidemiologists, outcomes, and implementation scientists) as well as all forms of health care workers and policy experts. However, the translation of bench findings into bedside has been a challenge. Improved strategies for clinical research are needed to shorten the time required to translate bench findings into patient care. Large national or even globe stroke registries are uniquely positioned to advance the science by providing a rich data source for disease and post marketing surveillance, comparative effectiveness and safety research, and ultimately dissemination of clinical trials findings to routine clinical practice. Fostering innovative clinical research and implementation through international collaborations provides an unprecedented opportunity to tackle the globe of stroke.
