ESOC 2023 | Unveiling the path to aphasia recovery: identifying predictors and standardizing data collection

Myzoon Ali, PhD, Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, UK, has been dedicated to investigating predictive markers in aphasia and their potential impact on improving clinical management. One of Dr. Ali’s notable projects, RELEASE (Rehabilitation and recovery of people with aphasia after Stroke), delves into individual participant factors that predict recovery, as well as therapy-related factors such as the intensity, frequency, duration, and total hours of therapy received. The goal is to understand how tailored therapy approaches can influence the recovery and outcomes of different participants, including individuals of varying ages and severity levels. Additionally, her work emphasizes the importance of standardizing outcomes in aphasia research, as different researchers across countries often employ different assessment tools based on availability and specific research needs. This variability poses a challenge when attempting to aggregate and analyze data in a meaningful way that benefits patients. To address this issue, Dr. Ali has been actively involved in developing recommendations for standardizing data collection in aphasia studies. This interview took place at The European Stroke Organisation Conference 2023 in Munich, Germany.
