Supporting Young Stroke Survivors Through Engaging Messaging (SYSSTEM)

Researchers from the University of Tasmania are conducting a study to explore and understand ways in which technology can support participation and quality of life for young stroke survivors while reducing the development of secondary chronic diseases.

The team is looking for:

  • young stroke survivors (18–30 years) in Australia who had a stroke when they were < 25 years
  • caregivers of these young stroke survivors
  • health care professionals with at least 12 months of experience working with young stroke survivors.

Participation will involve one-on-one interviews or focus groups depending on preference, and will take 30–90 minutes via zoom or telephone.

Participants will receive a gift card to the value of $50 (AUD).


If you or someone you know may be interested in participating, please contact Dinah Amoah by email: or phone: 03 6324 5441.
