Abstract

Involving patients in the determination of their care is increasingly important, and health-care professionals worldwide have recognized a need for clinical outcome measures and interventions that facilitate patient-centred care delivery in a range of settings. Aim A mixed-methods review was conducted, which aimed to identify stroke-specific patient-centred outcome measures and patient-centred interventions. Search strategy Databases searched included MEDLINE and PsycINFO; search strings were based on MeSH terms and keywords associated with the terms 'stroke' and 'patient-centred'. Data extraction and analysis Descriptive statistics were used to report quantitative data; thematic analysis was also performed in the included studies.
