Research seminar: Whose plan is it anyway? Perceptions of self-management support after stroke

Self-management (SM) interventions have expanded in recent years; we know very little about how support is constructed and enacted by patients and professionals.

Findings from a recent, feasibility controlled trial of integrated SM support (Bridges), explored 23 stroke participants' views of their control and autonomy during rehabilitation, confidence to manage after discharge and experiences of SM support.

Two main themes, ‘Progress owned by self or created by others' and ‘Working things out', were revealed through analysis. Participants illustrated markedly different experiences of the level and extent of their involvement and participation in decisions during rehabilitation.

This study raises questions about the purpose of rehabilitation after stroke and whether it may support self-management but also foster dependency in professional expertise – which one is right?

Booking is essential to attend this event.
