Evaluating the therapeutic effects of web-based mindfulness for stroke survivor and family caregiver partnerships: a protocol

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Psychological difficulties are common following stroke. The interconnected nature of stroke survivors and family caregivers means optimum outcomes are more likely when they are supported in partnership1. Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBIs) use meditation to improve psychological wellbeing. MBIs involve attending classes and regular home practice. Stroke survivors highlight potential challenges with attending lengthy structured classes and welcome the chance of learning MBI with a family caregiver2. Stroke survivors and family caregivers might benefit from learning MBI via different methods. This study will explore the feasibility, appropriateness, meaningfulness, and effectiveness of web-based MBIs for stroke survivor and family caregiver partnerships.
