Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine whether additional therapy provided by nurses at the weekend improved the physical outcome for people with stroke on a stroke rehabilitation unit. Forty-one people with stroke were randomized by means of minimization to intervention and control groups. The present study indicates that an increase in one-to-one input by nurses for people with stroke did not lead to a measurable difference in outcome in this small study.
