Raring to go: Second chances and a roadmap to recovery

Passionate and pioneering, Associate Professor Coralie English is focused on helping stroke survivors to regain their ability to walk and staying healthy in the long term.

Coralie English

There's a lot to be said for small things making a big difference. Associate Professor Coralie English's research in the health sciences arena is no exception – a single, literal step for one stroke patient equals a 'giant leap forward' for collective rehabilitation and brain recovery efforts across the country.

"My work is divided into two streams," the energetic academic shares.

"I develop and test models of physiotherapy service provision and examine the impact of sedentary behaviours on people's wellbeing after stroke."

"The latter is intertwined with a lack of activity, particularly in hospital settings, and a need to practise tasks regularly to get better at walking and everyday jobs."

Realising that exercise is "especially important" for long-term survivorship, Coralie is similarly determined to create "better, detailed and nuanced guidelines" for those who can't do what is currently recommended.

"We're all supposed to exercise for 30 minutes 5 times a week, but most of us don't," she clarifies.

"Achieving this is even harder if you have a disability or suffer from fatigue and depression, which are common conditions after stroke."

"I want to figure out how much physical activity is necessary to see some health benefits."

"Will we see improvements if patients sit a bit less and move a little more often?"

The more the merrier

Coralie's research career began in 2000, when she undertook a PhD at the University of South Australia. Though previously enjoying "making a difference" by "helping people get back on their feet" as a physiotherapist working in local rehabilitation centres, she soon found that life as a clinical physiotherapist raised more questions than it satisfactorily answered.

"Standard practice back then was to have a single, one-on-one physiotherapy session each day," she explains.

"But I often wondered whether having physiotherapy offered in groups would be more beneficial for stroke survivors."

"So I decided to compare the two delivery methods."

An innovative initiative, Coralie's study eventually became pilot data for a multi-centre randomised control trial. Completed in 2014, the larger project sought to determine the pros – if any – of conducting therapy sessions individually, in groups and on weekends.

"Our feeling was that providing a little bit extra on weekends might not be as effective as providing a lot more therapy, but in groups such as circuit classes, throughout the working week," she recalls.

"We were able to dramatically increase the amount of time patients spent with a physio when therapy was provided in group circuit classes."

"It didn't matter in terms of their degree of recovery of walking, however." 

"This is partially because they didn't spend extra time practising walking or being on their feet outside of these sessions."

Coming in with one question and spawning "a million" others, Coralie confesses she didn't quite get the answer she was hoping for.

"We still don't know what factors drive how much activity people are able to do in hospital," she acknowledges.

"But it's vital we identify and address them."

Use it or lose it

Coralie stayed on at the University of South Australia after receiving her doctorate in 2006, opting to renew her academic appointment and build creative collaborations with the influential Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne. A master at multitasking, the stroke recovery researcher also took on a Postdoctoral Training Fellowship with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in 2010. 

Under the guidance of one of her greatest mentors, Professor Julie Bernhardt, her postdoctoral work focused on understanding sedentary behavior of stroke survivors.

"We did a big systematic review, an observational study and a randomised control trial to see whether we could encourage stroke survivors to "sit less and move more," Coralie asserts. 

Changing scenery, changing lives

"Ready to move" and work with different people almost a decade later, Coralie joined the University of Newcastle in July 2015. The Associate Professor is newly and contentedly affiliated with some of the Hunter's most accomplished, internationally renowned minds in stroke recovery research.

"The region also boasts an NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Stroke Rehabilitation and Brain Recovery, held in conjunction with the Florey Institute in Melbourne," she comments.

"It's great to be here!"

Hitting the ground running, Coralie is already preparing for a number of exciting research ventures. The biggest, and perhaps most impressive, will see the prolific publisher lead a laboratory-based study on sedentary behaviour in stroke survivors in early 2016. Funded by a National Stroke Foundation Seeding Grant, the ambitious trial will seek to break up prolonged sitting times and encourage small but significant increases in light physical activity.

"Participants will come in and sit for six hours straight," she explains.

"We'll measure their blood pressure every hour and take regular blood samples to investigate reductions in cardiovascular risk markers."

"Then they'll come back again and do the same thing, only this time they'll get up and go for a short walk every half an hour for 3 minutes."

"The final visit will involve the participants doing some simple standing manoeuvres, such as squats and knee lifts every half an hour."

Replicating similar works conducted by the prestigious Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Coralie is simultaneously looking to shift the focus onto wider disease prevention and treatment.

"Researchers there have already shown that even short bursts of exercise can have huge benefits where glucose and insulin metabolism and cognitive function are concerned," she reveals.

"We're expecting the results to be even greater for our group as they're starting off at a worse health status than those who were used in the original experiment."

Hoping to use data collected to "leverage" larger amounts of financial support in the months and years to come, Coralie admits it "would be really good" to expand the project to look at different types of activity breaks for different types of stroke survivors.

"It's definitely a goal of mine," she affirms.

"I'd like to eventually be able to say that if you can't walk independently, if you can at least stand up x amount every x minutes, you will be healthier and reduce your risk of having another stroke."

An educator dedicated to honing her craft, Coralie is also working with a University Postdoctoral Fellow on developing a national longitudinal study of recovery of walking after stroke.

"There's very little contemporary information and Australian-specific information about this," she discloses.

"So we're aiming to engage clinicians from around the country and collect a core dataset."

Harnessing collective energy

Extending her network even further, Coralie is simultaneously developing several national and international collaborations. What began as informal meetings at a coffee shop during a stroke conference in 2014 has since rapidly evolved into an ACTIOnS group, for example, with the social scholar and 16 others joining forces to harmonise outcome measures and refine research strategies in stroke recovery.

"I'm part of a subgroup of the World Stroke Organisation too," she declares.

"I love finding the best people to work with to answer a given question."

© 2018 The Cochrane Collaboration. This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To determine whether interventions primarily intended to reduce time spent in sedentary behaviour after stroke reduce sedentary time, and whether they modify cardiovascular risk, and reduce the risk of death or secondary vascular events. We will also include interventions intended to reduce the length of prolonged uninterrupted periods of sedentary behaviour (i.e. interventions to fragment or interrupt). Primary objectives To determine whether interventions to reduce or interrupt sedentary time influence: mortality; recurrent cerebrovascular or cardiovascular events. Secondary objectives To determine whether interventions to reduce or interrupt sedentary time influence: amount of sedentary time; cardiometabolic risk profile (e.g. glucose tolerance, arterial function, blood cholesterol and blood pressure); adverse events (in addition to recurrent events, for example falls). Other objectives In addition, we will as a scoping exercise, describe the range of all outcome measures reported in all trials. By definition, any included study interventions will fall within the umbrella of physical activity.Therefore, it may be that multiple plausible benefits could emerge that are common to other energy-expending interventions.

© 2017 National Stroke Association Background Exercise has established benefits following stroke. We aimed to describe self-reported exercise 5 and 10 years after stroke, change in exercise over time, and to identify factors associated with long-term exercise. Methods Data on exercise (defined as 20 minutes' duration, causing sweating and increased heart rate) were obtained by questionnaire from a population-based stroke incidence study with 10-year follow-up. For change in exercise between 5 and 10 years (n = 276), we created 4 categories of exercise (no exercise, ceased exercising, commenced exercising, continued exercising). Multinomial regression determined associations between exercise categories and exercising before stroke, receiving exercise advice and functional ability and demographic factors. Results The prevalence of exercise at 5 years (n = 520) was 18.5% (n = 96) (mean age 74.7 [standard deviation {SD} 14] years, 50.6% male) and 24% (n = 78) at 10 years. In those with data at both 5 and 10 years (mean age 69 [standard deviation 14] years, 52.9% male), 15% (n = 42) continued exercising, 10% (n = 27) commenced exercising, 14% (n = 38) ceased exercising, and 61% (n = 169) reported no exercise. Continued exercise was associated with younger age (relative risk [RR].47 95% confidence interval [CI].25-0.89), greater Barthel score (RR 2.97 95% CI 1.00-8.86), independent walking (RR 2.32 95% CI 1.16-4.68), better quality of life (RR 10.9 95% CI 2.26-52.8), exercising before stroke (RR 16.0 95%CI 4.98-51.5), and receiving advice to exercise (RR 2.99 95% CI 1.73-5.16). Conclusions Few people exercise after stroke and fewer commence exercise long term. Innovative interventions to promote and maintain exercise are required after stroke.

© 2017, © 2017 World Stroke Organization. Finding, testing and demonstrating efficacy of new treatments for stroke recovery is a multifaceted challenge. We believe that to advance the field, neurorehabilitation trials need a conceptually rigorous starting framework. An essential first step is to agree on definitions of sensorimotor recovery and on measures consistent with these definitions. Such standardization would allow pooling of participant data across studies and institutions aiding meta-analyses of completed trials, more detailed exploration of recovery profiles of our patients and the generation of new hypotheses. Here, we present the results of a consensus meeting about measurement standards and patient characteristics that we suggest should be collected in all future stroke recovery trials. Recommendations are made considering time post stroke and are aligned with the international classification of functioning and disability. A strong case is made for addition of kinematic and kinetic movement quantification. Further work is being undertaken by our group to form consensus on clinical predictors and pre-stroke clinical data that should be collected, as well as recommendations for additional outcome measurement tools. To improve stroke recovery trials, we urge the research community to consider adopting our recommendations in their trial design.

© 2017 Taylor & Francis. Introduction: Attitudes are recognized as influencing research implementation. However, little is known about the process by which physiotherapists¿ attitudes and beliefs shape their use of 7-day per week therapy and circuit class therapy research findings. Understanding beliefs may assist in addressing barriers to research uptake. Methods: Fifteen physiotherapists from six rehabilitation centers who ranged in seniority, experience, and education levels consented to be interviewed. The transcribed interviews were analyzed using a qualitative content analysis drawing on the Theory of Planned Behavior. Findings: Participants felt that they had autonomy in adopting new approaches when the evidence was supported by social norms. Participants believed that 7-day per week therapy delivers a seamless service that increases physiotherapy time, which helps maintain patient improvement, but needs to accommodate patient choice and expectations. Circuit class therapy was viewed positively as it provides more physiotherapy time, increases patient social interaction, and motivation. However, this was qualified by a belief that patients would not receive individualized, quality of movement focused therapy, particularly for patients with limited capacities. Conclusion: Implementation of a new approach depends on the past experience, coherence with individual beliefs regarding important elements of therapy content, and opportunities to control barriers to implementation.

© 2016 Australian Physiotherapy Association. Questions: Among people receiving inpatient rehabilitation after stroke, does additional weekend physiotherapy and/or occupational therapy reduce the length of rehabilitation hospital stay compared to those who receive a weekday-only service, and does this change after controlling for individual factors? Does additional weekend therapy improve the ability to walk and perform activities of daily living, measured at discharge? Does additional weekend therapy improve health-related quality of life, measured 6 months after discharge from rehabilitation? Which individual, clinical and hospital characteristics are associated with shorter length of rehabilitation hospital stay? Design: This study pooled individual data from two randomised, controlled trials (n = 350) using an individual patient data meta-analysis and multivariate regression. Participants: People with stroke admitted to inpatient rehabilitation facilities. Intervention: Additional weekend therapy (physiotherapy and/or occupational therapy) compared to usual care (5 days/week therapy). Outcome measures: Length of rehabilitation hospital stay, independence in activities of daily living measured with the Functional Independence Measure, walking speed and health-related quality of life. Results: Participants who received weekend therapy had a shorter length of rehabilitation hospital stay. In the un-adjusted analysis, this was not statistically significant (MD -5.7 days, 95% CI -13.0 to 1.5). Controlling for hospital site, age, walking speed and Functional Independence Measure score on admission, receiving weekend therapy was significantly associated with a shorter length of rehabilitation hospital stay (ß = 7.5, 95% CI 1.7 to 13.4, p = 0.001). There were no significant between-group differences in Functional Independence Measure scores (MD 1.9 points, 95% CI -2.8 to 6.6), walking speed (MD 0.06 m/second, 95% CI -0.15 to 0.04) or health-related quality of life (SMD -0.04, 95% CI -0.26 to 0.19) at discharge. Discussion: Modest evidence indicates that additional weekend therapy might reduce rehabilitation hospital length of stay. Clinical Trial Registration: ACTRN12610000096055, ACTRN12609000973213.

© 2016, © 2016 World Stroke Organization. Background: Fatigue is a common and debilitating symptom after stroke. The last decade has seen rapid expansion of the research literature on post-stroke fatigue, but prevalence remains unclear. Aims: To estimate post-stroke fatigue prevalence and to identify the contributing factors to fatigue, by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. Summary of review: We included all studies of adult stroke survivors that used a recognized assessment scale for fatigue (search date September 2014). Two reviewers independently reviewed all full texts for inclusion. Data were extracted by one reviewer and independently cross-checked by a second. Risk of bias was evaluated using a critical appraisal tool. From an overall yield of 921 studies, 101 full text papers were screened, and 49 of these met inclusion criteria. The most widely used measure of fatigue was the Fatigue Severity Scale (n = 24 studies). Prevalence estimates at a cut-off score of > or = 4 were available for 22 of these 24 studies (total n = 3491), and ranged from 25 to 85%. In random effects meta-analysis, the pooled prevalence estimate was 50% (95% CI 43¿57%), with substantial heterogeneity (I2= 94%). Neither depression status nor time point post-stroke explained the heterogeneity between studies. In post-hoc analysis, fatigue prevalence was found to be lower in the four Asian studies (35%; 95% CI 20¿50; I2= 96%). Conclusions: Our results confirm that fatigue is a widespread issue for stroke survivors, although it may be less prevalent in Asia. Further research is needed to explain the wide variability in prevalence estimates between studies.

Introduction: Analysis of reliable registry data can direct future research to influence clinical care. Data from the Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive have been used to test hypotheses and inform trial design. We sought to expand Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive into a broader stroke resource with new opportunities for research and international collaboration. Methods: Using procedures initially developed for an acute stroke trial archive, we invited trialists to lodge data on rehabilitation, secondary prevention, intracerebral haemorrhage, imaging, and observational stroke studies. Results: We have extended Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive into six subsections: Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Acute (n=28190 patients' data), Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Rehab (n=10194), Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-intracerebral haemorrhage (n=1829), Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Prevention, Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Imaging (n=1300), and Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Plus (n=6573). Enrollment continues, with commitments for the contribution of six further trials to Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Prevention, 13 trials to Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Rehab, and one registry to Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive-Plus. Data on age, type of stroke, medical history, outcomes by modified Rankin scale and Barthel Index (BI), mortality, and adverse events are available for analyses. The Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive network encourages the development of young investigators and provides opportunities for international peer review and collaboration. Conclusions: Application of the original Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive concepts beyond acute stroke trials can extend the value of clinical research at low cost, without threatening commercial or intellectual property interests. This delivers valuable research output to inform the efficiency of future stroke research. We invite stroke researchers to participate actively in Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive and encourage the extension of Virtual International Stroke Trials Archive principles to other disease areas. © 2012 The Authors.

The aim of this investigation was to establish a reliable method of measuring diaphragm movement during relaxed tidal breathing. This study follows a previous study in which test-retest reliability was established for maximal breaths but not for tidal breaths. Twelve normal subjects were tested in a semi-reclined long sitting position. Sonographic measurements were taken for tidal breaths during four different patterns of breathing. All breaths were controlled for inspired volume. Testing was repeated one week later under the same conditions. The results showed that the method for measuring diaphragmatic movement at tidal breathing during a given pattern of breathing was reliable. This method will allow further investigation of the diaphragm during different breathing manoeuvres at tidal volume.
