Grace Turner is a NIHR Post Doctoral Research Fellow based at the University of Birmingham. Grace is undertaking a secondment with Professor Jonathan Mant and the Cardiovascular Group as part of her NIHR fellowship.
Grace’s primary research interests are focused on the long-term impact of transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and missed opportunities for the primary prevention of stroke. She is also interested in use of primary care medical records to conduct epidemiological research.
Grace’s NIHR fellowship is focused on unmet needs following mini stroke (aka transient ischaemic attack: TIA) and minor stroke. The project (SUPPORT TIA) aims to refine and test a new follow-up care pathway for people who have had a TIA or minor stroke. Find out more about SUPPORT TIA here:
