Understanding the barriers and challenges to social participation for people living with stroke

Location: British Columbia Lower Mainland and Okanagan region

Recruitment period: Until July 2020

Description: The purpose of this study is to assess the physical and psychological capability, opportunity to socialize, and motivation to socialize of people living with stroke. Additionally, how factors such as depression, stress, and anxiety predict social participation will also be examined. The study will help increase the understanding of the barriers and challenges people living with stroke face around social participation. This in turn will inform future research to improve the development of new strategies and programs for stroke recovery.

Language: English (fluent)

Adults 19 years and older who have experienced stroke
Living in the community

Participant requirements: Participants will meet with a member of the research team at either the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver or UBC Okanagan. During the in-person meeting, participants will be provided with a questionnaire and asked about physical and psychological status poststroke, their opportunities and motivation to socialize, how often they socialize and the quality of their social participation. A cognitive assessment will also take place. Participation is required for between one and one and a half hours. Participants will be provided with $15 dollars to cover travel and parking expenses. Individuals who express interest in the study will have an opportunity to speak with a member of the research team by phone or email. All potential participants will be provided with an information letter, consent form, and have opportunities to ask questions.
