Perseverance with home-based upper limb rehabilitation: The perspectives of stroke survivors in Queensland (research)

James Cook University

Have you had a stroke? 

Are you back at home and finding it difficult to use your arm and hand in everyday tasks? 

What are your experiences with trying to practice arm and hand movement at home?

This project aims to explore stroke survivors’ views on keeping going with practice at home to drive recovery of their arm and hand.

Participants in the study will be required to participate in either a group discussion or individual interview to discuss factors which have helped or hindered their ability to keep going with arm and hand practice at home.

This discussion will take approximately 90 minutes. Researchers will do their best to schedule a time that is convenient for participants.

Group discussions will occur in Townsville, Cairns, Mount Isa and Brisbane. Individual interviews will be conducted in participant's homes or a place of their choosing, or via telephone or video conference.
