What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

5. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for improving aphasia in adults with aphasia after stroke. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for improving aphasia in adults with aphasia after stroke. Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide and aphasia among survivors is common. Current speech and language therapy (SLT) strategies have only limited effectiveness in improving aphasia. A possible adjunct to SLT for improving SLT outcomes might be non-invasive brain stimulation by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to modulate cortical excitability and hence (...) to improve aphasia.To assess the effects of tDCS for improving aphasia in people who have had a stroke.We searched the Cochrane Stroke Group Trials Register (June 2018), CENTRAL (Cochrane Library, June 2018), MEDLINE (1948 to June 2018), Embase (1980 to June 2018), CINAHL (1982 to June 2018), AMED (1985 to June 2018), Science Citation Index (1899 to June 2018), and seven additional databases.

Effects of multimodal communication program on patients with chronic aphasia: a single-subject A-B-A design study Aphasia as a common consequence of stroke, is an acquired neurologic communication disorder that can affect symbol language processing. Different types of intervention approaches have been introduced. Multimodal Communication Program (MCP) is a new augmentative alternative communication approach in chronic aphasia. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of MCP (...) on communication skills of patients with chronic aphasia.This prospective, single subject, A-B-A design study was done during 2016 in Semnan, Iran. Participants were two patients with severe aphasia with a single left-hemisphere stroke. Three phases, including baseline, intervention and follow-up were administered. The patients received nine-hour intervention, over 10 working days.Three different scores were calculated for each patient: verbal efforts, the frequency of each modality and the accuracy

‘I felt pain. Deep pain…’: Experiences of primary caregivers of stroke survivors with aphasia in a South African township Aphasia is an acquired impairment in language and in the cognitive processes that underlie language. Aphasia affects the quality of life of the person with aphasia (PWA) and his or her families in various ways in diverse contexts and cultures. It is therefore important that speech language therapists understand how different contextual and cultural factors may mediate (...) were analysed according to the principles of thematic analysis.Findings indicated that caregivers are unfamiliar with aphasia and the support available to them. Participants experienced frustration and found communication to be challenging owing to their lack of communication strategies. The participants' experiences reflected their context-specific experiences, such as feminisation of caregiving, barriers to healthcare, the influence of low health literacy and contextual perspectives on stroke

Efficacy of intensive aphasia therapy in patients with chronic stroke: a randomised controlled trial Recent evidence has fuelled the debate on the role of massed practice in the rehabilitation of chronic post-stroke aphasia. Here, we further determined the optimal daily dosage and total duration of intensive speech-language therapy.Individuals with chronic aphasia more than 1 year post-stroke received Intensive Language-Action Therapy in a randomised, parallel-group, blinded-assessment (...) , controlled trial. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two outpatient groups who engaged in either highly-intensive practice (Group I: 4 hours daily) or moderately-intensive practice (Group II: 2 hours daily). Both groups went through an initial waiting period and two successive training intervals. Each phase lasted 2 weeks. Co-primary endpoints were defined after each training interval.Thirty patients-15 per group-completed the study. A primary outcome measure (Aachen Aphasia Test) revealed

However, because fluency is a multi-dimensional term based on factors that can dissociate (grammatical accuracy, rate of speech, prosody, effort, articulatory precision, hesitations), it is often difficult to judge. A patient can be fluent on one dimension and non-fluent on another. Therefore, there is often disagreement between two people in judging fluency of an aphasic individual.

14. Combined Dextroamphetamine and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Poststroke Aphasia. (Abstract)

Combined Dextroamphetamine and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Poststroke Aphasia. There is a growing need for various effective adjunctive treatment options for speech recovery after stroke. A pharmacological agent combined with noninvasive brain stimulation has not been previously reported for poststroke aphasia recovery. In this "proof of concept" study, we aimed to test the safety of a combined intervention consisting of dextroamphetamine, transcranial direct current stimulation (...) , and speech and language therapy in subjects with nonfluent aphasia. Ten subjects with chronic nonfluent aphasia underwent two experiments where they received dextroamphetamine or placebo along with transcranial direct current stimulation and speech and language therapy on two separate days. The Western Aphasia Battery-Revised was used to monitor changes in speech performance. No serious adverse events were observed. There was no significant increase in blood pressure with amphetamine or deterioration

16. The Consequences of the Consequences: The Impact of the Environment on People With Aphasia Over Time Full Text available with Trip Pro

The Consequences of the Consequences: The Impact of the Environment on People With Aphasia Over Time Understanding the impact of the environment on the participation of people with aphasia depends on one's perspective. A long-term perspective provides a unique insight into the myriad of ways in which the environment can influence the participation of people living with aphasia over decades. In this article, the authors present the real-life story of "Hank," who has lived with aphasia for more (...) than 15 years. The authors consider how 2 different conceptual frameworks-the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health and the Social Determinants of Health-account for Hank's experience. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health is useful to conceptualize the range of factors that influence living with aphasia at a particular point in time. In contrast, the Social Determinants of Health is useful to conceptualize the cumulative impact
