What do stroke survivors, carers and providers consider important in rehabilitation services?

This study will aim to address the question "What do the users of rehabilitation programmes think is important in a rehabilitation tool?". The study uses a questionnaire to collect the views of stroke survivors, carers and professionals on services available after a stroke and what aspects of rehabilitation are most important to them.

This research will be used to inform further projects looking at user perspectives on services available after a stroke, and in the long term will form part of a larger project aiming to improve rehabilitation outcomes for stroke survivors who have suffered a visual impairment as a result of stroke.

If you are interested in taking part you must be:

  • Either a stroke survivor, carer or professional involved in the care of stroke patients
  • Be at least 6 months post-stroke
  • Be able to give full informed consent
  • Living in the UK

The study consists of a short questionnaire that should take around 10 minutes to complete. The questionnaire is accessed online via this link: https://sunduni.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3P15vBhAcrlDX1j

Data will be collected with as little identifiable personal information as possible. All data will be stored in line with the Data Protection Act (2018) .Data will be stored securely on a password protected and encrypted computer, and will only be accessed by the researchers.
