A controlled cohort study of functional, cognitive and emotional outcomes after Transient Ischemic Attack

National stroke guidelines recommend that people with a suspected Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) are referred to TIA clinics and managed according to their risk of further stroke. Consequently the emphasis tends to be on medical management and survival. Little is known about the long-term impact of TIA on patient reported outcomes. The aim of FACE TIA is to investigate whether or not patients have depressed mood, and/or residual functional or cognitive problems that adversely influence their day-to-day living after being diagnosed with TIA.

Team Staff: Professor Cath Sackley, Jenny O’Donnell, Grace Turner, Sheriden Bevan, Peter Bradburn
