Patients who have had a stroke are a large group in whom long-term disability is common and therefore impaired general health is likely. The Short Form 36 (SF-36) is a popular measure of general health that has been used with this patient group, but not all aspects of its psychometric properties have been established for use in this context, and its use in the early post-stroke phase has been neglected.
