About Project 3

The International Pediatric Stroke Study (IPSS) is one of the largest research networks studying pediatric stroke, but previously, the network has focused on ischemic stroke (a stroke caused by a lack of blood flow, usually from a clot). Recently, this experienced group of international researchers have identified pediatric hemorrhagic stroke as a priority area for future research. Project 3, Epidemiology Of Pediatric Hemorrhagic Stroke And Arteriovenous Malformations In A Multicenter, International Cohort, will collaborate with the International Pediatric Stroke Organization (IPSO) and International Pediatric Stroke Study (IPSS) by utilizing its international network and infrastructure to develop a pediatric hemorrhagic stroke working group. Researchers will examine the epidemiology of pediatric hemorrhagic stroke, with a particular focus on epidemiology and health disparities based on race/ethnicity, geography and socioeconomics. Researchers will also collect longitudinal outcomes and work with collaborating investigators in physical and occupational therapy to develop improved outcome measures. This project will enroll a large number of children across the United States and internationally and broaden the understanding of pediatric hemorrhagic stroke at a population level.
