My name is Kirsty and I am a PhD student at the University of Winchester looking to understand the rehabilitation experiences of stroke survivors.
There is a great deal of research regarding which rehabilitation techniques may help recovery from stroke, however, there is very little information regarding the effectiveness of currently used techniques. There is also very little information regarding access to rehabilitation, which aspects are most important and which are most helpful to stroke survivors. I am hoping to use the results of this study to inform the design of a rehabilitation intervention which I hope to use to aid recovery. At the end of the survey you will be given the opportunity to provide contact details (if you wish to) to enable you to participate in future research.
There are no restrictions on who may take part in this study, if you have had a stroke I want to hear from you. I am asking participants in this study to fill in a questionnaire, either online or on paper which consists of 30 questions and should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. If you choose to complete a paper questionnaire please send me the details of where to send it via e-mail, phone or post. I will of course send a stamped addressed envelope for the return of the questionnaire so there will be no out of pocket expenses for participating in this study. The questionnaire is open now and will remain open until 30th April 2018.
