Stroke survivors’ perspectives: deciding whether to take medications that might increase physical recovery (research)

The aim of this study is to learn what is really important to stroke survivors when making decisions about taking medications that might increase their physical recovery when participating in rehabilitation.

The study involves an online survey with a series of questions comparing different medications and asks stroke survivors to decide which option they would prefer to take. The results from this study will indicate which factors have more importance to stroke survivors when deciding to take a medication, and will help researchers and clinicians tailor medication regimes to suit stroke survivors.

To be involved, participants must:

a) Be over the age of 18;
b) Have had a stroke;
c) Have access to a computer, smart phone or tablet; and access to the internet.

The survey is available at JCU Stroke Survey (2020/2021) and will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
