What is Living Well After Stroke?

The focus of Living Well After Stroke is secondary prevention of stroke.

The program aims to equip individuals with a ‘toolkit’ of skills and strategies for making positive, healthy changes that last. This could include improving healthy eating, increasing physical activity, or taking medication regularly – based on individual needs.

Who can participate in the pilot?

Eligible participants will be:

  • Queensland residents
  • Aged 18-years and over
  • Have had a stroke or TIA between 3-months and 5-years ago
  • Were discharged home from hospital after their stroke or TIA (i.e. were not referred to inpatient rehabilitation)

 

What will be involved?

Participants will complete 5 group-based intervention sessions over 8-weeks (online or in-person). Participants will also be asked to complete 3 surveys over the course of the program, and a final survey 8-weeks after the final session, to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
