Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Even though the mental-health needs of clients are considered to be a priority, many OT practitioners are dissatisfied with their ability to completely address the psychosocial needs of individuals poststroke (Simpson et al., 2018). Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the client’s perspective regarding the extent to which OT practitioners and other healthcare professionals addressed the psychosocial needs of individuals after a stroke and during the rehabilitation process.
