About the Project

People living with stroke talk of feeling abandoned, isolated and left with unmet needs after state-funded rehabilitation has ended. This study will involve in-depth interviews with people living with stroke to explore the elements of the health and social care system that prepared them best and least for continuing with their lives. It will be relevant to consider identity, and how this is disrupted and rebuilt, and to consider the complexity of health and social care systems. Study findings will be valuable in informing decisions regarding policy, funding, and service design. The study could take the form of participatory action research, with participants working together to plan their ideal rehabilitation pathway based on their collective experiences.
