This study aims to explore the current dietary intake and eating patterns of stroke survivors and to understand the factors affecting their food choices.

Stroke/TIA survivors will be invited to complete 2 Online surveys:

  1. A food choices survey asking if their diet has changed since having their stroke and what the factors affecting their diet.
  2. The Australian Eating Survey which will tell us about their usual dietary intake.

We will also be conducting some individual interviews with participants who indicate that they would like to participate further. These will be to gather more in-depth information on the factors affecting food choices.

We will use the data collected to inform the development of a diet program to help stroke survivors eat a healthier diet. Go to Food Choices After Stroke Survey | HMRI
