This YouTube video was created to support dissemination of the outcomes of the SCIP-R (Supported Communication to Improve Participation in Rehabilitation) study. The trial investigated the efficacy of an intervention to support the recovery of stroke patients who have aphasia. 

People with aphasia have been collaborators in all aspects of the study, and the video was an opportunity to further involve them as well as getting the findings out to a wider  audience than may be possible through conventional publishing routes.   The video has been submitted to the NIHR New media competition.


SCIP-R ran from 2011-2014.  It was led by Dr Simon Horton at the University of East Anglia, in collaboration with Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust, Addenbrookes Hospital and Norfolk Conversation Partners. 
SCIP-R was Sponsored by South Norfolk CCG and funded through the NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RFPB) Programme.
