Background to DORIS

DORIS was a Scottish initiative formed following the recognition that the promotion of evidence based stroke rehabilitation and future relevant high quality research would be improved with:
  • Easy access to up-to-date high quality evidence

  • Identification of priority areas for future stroke rehabilitation research

  • Shared knowledge of current stroke rehabilitation research

  • Networks and effective communication and collaboration between researchers and clinical staff with shared research questions and / or interests

  • Avoidance of duplication of effort between groups

DORIS aimed to bring together representatives from all relevant Scottish groups to design and manage a shared web-based information database, aimed at meeting the shared information needs of these groups.
The development of DORIS was funded by the Scottish Government's National Advisory Committee for Stroke, March 2009-February 2012. The DORIS website was officially launched in December 2011.
