A sub-study of the 'Predicting and Promoting Aphasia Recovery' (PAPAR) project 

This study looks at language impairment (aphasia) after stroke. "Will I get better" is often asked by individuals and families. This study aims to determine the best way to provide information about recovery in response to this question.

Researchers want to interview people with aphasia and their significant others to know their experiences of finding out how much better aphasia will get. They want to know how people with aphasia and their significant others would prefer to receive information about how much better aphasia will get.

You can participate in this study if you are:

  1. someone with aphasia, or the significant other of someone with aphasia;
  2. between 3 and 9 months after stroke;
  3. aged 18 years or older,
  4. live in the greater Brisbane area.
