Full description

This project will investigate the effects of a Narrative and Skills-building Intervention on young stroke survivors' community reintegration and psychosocial outcomes. A randomised controlled trial will be conducted. Participants will be facilitated to narrate their survival experiences and rebuild core life skills. Outcomes including community reintegration, depressive symptoms, health-related quality of life, self-efficacy, outcome expectation and satisfaction with performance of self-management behaviours will be measured. This is a novel trial to test the short and long-term effects of a theory-based intervention on young stroke survivors' community reintegration.
