Jenny O’Donnell is a Research Associate and a Study Coordinator on the FACE TIA study, which is a NSPCR funded study looking at the long term impact of transient ischaemic attack (mini-stroke) on anxiety, depression, cognition and daily functionality.
The FACE TIA Study (Functional, Cognitive and Emotional outcomes after Transient Ischemic Attack) is a prospective, controlled cohort study. The study aims to investigate whether or not patients have depressed mood, and/or residual functional or cognitive problems that adversely influence their daily living following a TIA. Jenny is involved in daily project management of the study and direct patient contact through conducting face to face cognitive interviews with participants.
