Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This poster describes a study that examined the extent to which environmental factors affected participation in social activities for individuals at least six months poststroke. Results of the study provide OTs with a better understanding of important environmental factors to consider when addressing social participation after stroke and help to expand the focus of the rehabilitation literature beyond body functions and structures to participation in meaningful activities.
