The Berlin Manifesto   Preventing Dementia by Preventing Stroke: The Berlin Manifesto.  Vladimir Hachinkski, Karl Einhäupl, Detlev Ganten et al

The individuals at the highest risk of developing a stroke are those that have already had one, and a stroke doubles the chances of developing dementia.

Based on this and other evidence, the World Stroke Organization updated its Proclamation to include the joint prevention of stroke and dementia.  The World Federation of NeuroRehabilitation is one of the early endorsers, along with all the major international organizations dealing with stroke, dementia, the heart and the brain (available for free at https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/STROKEAHA.115.011237)

A special meeting and subsequent contributions exploring the commonalities of stroke and dementia resulted in the blueprint “Preventing Dementia by Preventing Stroke: The Berlin Manifesto” outlining the scientific bases for beginning to prevent both stroke and dementia together.  (available for free at https://alz-journals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1016/j.jalz.2019.06.001) 

The topic of prevention is particularly important for rehabilitation, since stroke patients remain at risk.
