Exploring the experience of post-stroke fatigue in community dwelling stroke survivors: a prospective qualitative study
Disability & Rehabilitation, 07/11/2012
White JH et al. – The results of this study suggest that in spite of reasonable objective physical recovery post–stroke, fatigue in community–dwelling stroke survivors may be disabling. The use of qualitative methodology was sensitive in identifying the factors that play a role in the experience of fatigue. The essential role of health professionals in this context is to provide support and education regarding fatigue and to promote participation after stroke in therapy programs.
