Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study explored the experience of stroke from the perspective of family members of young adults who have had a stroke. Gaining understanding of the short, medium and long-term needs and desired rehabilitation outcomes of family members assisted identification of appropriate family-centred multi-disciplinary rehabilitation interventions. A qualitative approach based on Merleau-Ponty’s existential phenomenology enabled exploration of family members’ experience of stroke was used.
