My Stroke Guide is an online tool designed to help individuals self manage their own condition after a stroke. My Stroke Guide Buddies visit stroke survivors and their carers in a variety of locations and settings and introduce them to this tool.

The goal is to help stroke survivors and their carers understand how they might benefit from it and how they can use the guide on a regular basis.

As a My Stroke Guide Buddy, you will introduce survivors and carers to My Stroke Guide, explain the functions of the guide in detail in a clear manner and help people to personalise their accounts. You’ll also design a plan with the survivor and carer to help people to overcome any difficulties and see that they use My Stroke Guide regularly. This will either be one-on-one, in small groups, or by running drop-in sessions.
