Abstract

Stroke is the second commonest cause of mortality worldwide and the most significant cause of disability in the United Kingdom. It is a chronic condition which has a devastating impact on the lives of individuals and their families. Although stroke is commonly perceived to be a disease of the elderly, 25% of stroke events occur in young adults (i.e., aged < 65), yet there is a dearth of research that has explored the experience of young adults. This doctoral study explored the experience of young adults who have had a stroke and members of their families.
