Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Occupational therapy can play an integral role in improving the quality of life (QOL) of stroke survivors. This study shows how the use of interviews can best capture perceptions of QOL and how client-centered practice can lead to a positive perception of the occupational therapy profession and optimize functional outcomes.
