Systematic review of community participation interventions post-stroke

Takeaway

  • Current community participation interventions fall short in addressing full inclusion and citizenship of people with stroke; studies showing effect on participation, depression, and health-related quality of life (HrQoL) outcomes are limited.

Why this matters

    People report low satisfaction with rehabilitation overly focused on physical outcomes post-stroke: future interventions should focus on civic/societal-level participation and community activities beyond leisure.
