Details and patient eligibility


The purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility and potential outcomes of a first version of a web-based intervention in occupational therapy focusing on empowering an active everyday life for people with stroke.

Full description

A large amount of people with stroke face extensive changes to live an active life and restrictions in engaging in various activities are common. However, the rehabilitation seldom focusses on the process of change people with stroke need to go through to adapt to their changed capacity and reach an active life on new terms. This implies that rehabilitation needs to be developed to provide activity-based self-management strategies that can facilitate an active life. Also, there is a need to improve the access to rehabilitation by making use of digital e- health solutions. Based on these needs, the web-based occupational therapy intervention "Strategies Empowering activities in Everyday life" (SEE 1.0) has been developed. This feasibility trial has a pre-test post-test design without a control group. The trial is embedded in a mix- method approach combining assessment tools, feasibility registration forms, intervention logbooks, qualitative interviews and focus groups. The feasibility of the web-based intervention SEE as well as of the study design, will be evaluated in terms of acceptability, adherence, values and appropriateness from the perspectives of patients with stroke and the staff. Also, the potential outcome of SEE will be evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively. The results will support the continued development of SEE and provide for larger-scale research studies. The intervention, that combines a focus on empowering an active everyday life with a web-based format including online meetings, is innovative and is not part of clinical practice today. Thereby, the results can be valuable for future research and clinical practice in general. The study protocol and the results will be published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented at conferences.

The web- based occupational therapy intervention SEE
Experimental group
The web-based intervention starts with eight educational modules focusing on engagement in activities and strategies to support an active life. The modules, that is delivered on a secure national health platform, include short education videos followed by self-reflections and digital assignments supporting the change process. The occupational therapist provides feedback after each assignment and, also, meet the patients for face- to- face online guiding sessions at three times during these first two- three weeks of the intervention. Thereafter, an individually tailored activity plan with goals and activity-based strategies are established. During the change process, the patients receive continued support from the occupational therapist until the goals are achieved.
