Is it time to re-evaluate outcome measures in post-stroke arm rehabilitation trials?

Takeaway

  • Outcome measures that matter to stroke survivors, carers and clinicians are not considered in existing post-stroke arm rehabilitation trials.

Why this matters

  • Taking into consideration of what matters to stroke survivors, carers and clinicians would allow the development of a more meaningful set of outcome measures that would positively influence post-stroke care for patients and their carers.
