Last modified by Doug Maynard on 2019/01/24 02:54

Perinatal stroke occurs between the 20th week of gestation and the 28th day of life and is typically accompanied by functional and neurobehavioural deficits. This session will explore how the functional and neurobehavioural outcomes following perinatal stroke impact the psychosocial well-being of the caregivers. Additionally, it will highlight the importance of assessing caregiver impact, especially through tools developed specifically for the perinatal stroke population. Understanding factors associated with caregiver well-being has implications for informing treatment and interventions.

His research interests involve studying the long term impacts of neurological paediatric disorders on children and their families. As such, his current research projects, in Dr. Carmen Rasmussen's lab, focus on exploring the association between perinatal stroke and the subjective well-being of the caregivers and the child. Muhammad hopes to pursue a career in paediatrics in the near future.
