Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

RTW is an essential target for many stroke survivors. As yet, the prevalence of RTW poststroke in developing countries such as Jordan is unknown. Additionally, more research is required to identify factors that contribute to RTW poststroke. This study aims to: (1) determine the prevalence of RTW among stroke survivors in Jordan, and (2) determine the predictors of RTW from a holistic perspective using the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF), 3rd edition.
