Interviews with stroke patients

More attention needed for social support

  • More aftercare needed in years after stroke
  • Help with resuming work, finances and alimony desired
  • Screening tools not suitable

Especially on the long term, more attention is required for the need of social support in stroke patients. This is the conclusion of German researchers who used questionnaires and interviews with 57 patients to map these needs.
