While many studies focus on the impact of somatosensory changes on participation after stroke, they do not address the lived experience of all sensory systems (e.g., taste and smell). Researchers used a qualitative descriptive method using semistructured interviews to collect data. Results from this study could be utilized to inform healthcare providers about stroke survivors’ sensory needs and preferences to help them design interventions that match their needs.
