Outstanding Participation in the 10th European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC)

We are pleased to announce the outstanding participation of our researchers from the HARMONICS project in the prestigious 10th European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC), which took place recently. This event is one of the world’s most important meetings in the field of stroke research and treatment, and brought together experts from around the globe to share advances and discuss the latest developments in the fight against this condition.

During the congress, our researchers presented a poster entitled «PERCEPTION OF HEALTH STATUS IN STROKE PATIENTS THROUGH PATIENT REPORTED OUTCOME MEASURES DEPENDING ON WHO COLLECTS THEM». This paper focuses on the perception of health status in patients who have suffered a stroke, assessed through patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), and how this perception may vary depending on who collects the information.


Key Aspects of the Study:

Aim: To examine how the perception of post-stroke health status may differ depending on the person or team collecting the data, which may include health professionals, caregivers      or the patients themselves.

Methods: Use of patient-reported outcome measures to gain an accurate and personalised view of their post-stroke health status and quality of life.

Findings: variations in patient responses were identified depending on who conducted the data collection, highlighting the importance of this factor in clinical research and medical decision-making.

This poster has not only aroused great interest among conference attendees, but also highlighted the relevance of considering who collects patient-reported outcome measures in clinical studies. The findings of this study may have important implications for improving the accuracy and reliability of data in stroke research, and ultimately for the development of more effective and personalised treatments.



We would like to thank all members of the HARMONICS team for their dedication and hard work, as well as all patients and collaborators who make this study possible. We also extend our thanks to the European Stroke Organisation for providing this platform to share and discuss crucial research that can make a significant difference in the lives of many people.


Let’s continue working together to advance the understanding and treatment of stroke!
