Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Stroke self-management programs provide a comprehensive approach to managing the day-to-day aspects of living with the effects of stroke. The impact of these programs on participants has not been previously explored. This presentation will share the results of a qualitative study exploring the process of adaptation as described by five stroke survivors following their participation in a stroke self-management program.
