‘Finding The Silver Lining’ In Younger Stroke Survivors

Research participation requests are sent to the Stroke Association from external research institutions (e.g. universities and hospitals), which we post on My Stroke Guide.

We conduct basic checks on these before promoting but are not involved in their running. This means we cannot comment on trials and have no affiliation with them.

The University of Melbourne

If you are 18 – 65 years old and living with a stroke, we would love to hear about your experience.

What is this study about?

In this study, we are exploring people’s experience of finding benefits after stroke, and its relationship with quality of life.

Why participate?

The information you provide may help develop interventions or services to better address the emotional and social needs of younger stroke survivors.

Who can participate?

Younger adults aged between 18 – 65 years who had at least one stroke.

Had the first stroke at least 6 months ago.

Able to complete online surveys in English (with or without assistance).

What does it involve?

You will be asked to complete an online survey about your stroke, personality, social support, coping strategies, benefit finding and quality of life.

The survey will take approximately 20 – 30 minutes to complete.

After the survey, you will be invited to participate in a 45 – 60 minute interview over Zoom/Skype or telephone where participation in the interview is voluntary.
