What we do
NWCR works with people:

Research study looking for stroke survivors
Are you a stroke survivor living at home in rural or remote Queensland?
James Cook University PhD student Sarah Jackson is looking for stroke survivors to participate in a study about using technology to drive their recovery.
Stroke survivors who have had a stroke more than six months ago, have a goal they want to work towards and are interested in using technology, are invited to register their interest in participating in the study by contacting North West Community Rehab Centre on 0477 698 839 or email NWCR.firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like more information or would like to participate at NWCR, we welcome you to contact us directly.
