The interdisciplinary Rotterdam Aphasia Research Group is a collaboration of the Erasmus University Medical Center and Rijndam Rehabilitation in the Netherlands with participating clinicians/researchers from the departments of Neurology, Rehabilitation Medicine, Radiology, Neurosurgery, Neuroscience and Public health.
The main focus of the Rotterdam Aphasia Research Group is recovery, prognosis and treatment of aphasic patients. The group has conducted a large prospective cohort study and several randomised controlled trials on the efficacy of specific treatment methods. Several diagnostic instruments and treatment programs have been developed, validated and implemented in daily practice by this research group. The efficacy studies are focused on developing and implementing novel treatment programs or treatment approaches, and include imaging techniques and brain stimulation techniques. In addition to disorder oriented treatment, the development and implementation of treatment protocols supporting conversation for partners and patients is an important topic.
