Defining Trajectories of Cognitive-Communicative and Quality of Life Outcomes following Stroke

Project: Research project

Project Details


The proposed project will define the trajectories of linguistic, cognitive-communicative, and quality of life improvement during and after inpatient rehabilitation, identify the therapy characteristics associated with gains during and after inpatient rehabilitation, and assess objective measures of patient-reported QoL.
Masha Kocherginsky, PhD, will lead this project’s Statistical and Data Management Core, which will be responsible for the development and implementation of statistical and data management components of the project, including developing data collection tools and case report forms, setting up the REDCAP database, overseeing data quality throughout the study period, preparing quality assurance reports, and performing statistical analysis of the data. Dr. Kocherginsky has extensive experience as a biostatistician working with observational studies, clinical trials and data management, and she is currently the Leader of the Statistics and Data Management Core leader for a multi-site NIDILRR-funded clinical trial of hypoxia in patients with spinal cord injury.
A Data Analyst (MS level) will be hired to work under Dr. Kocherginsky’s guidance to develop data collection tools and case report forms, set up the REDCap database, produce regular data monitoring reports, and assist with final statistical analyses.
