Educating Stroke Patient Families. Final Report Volumes I, II, and III. Milwaukee Media for Rehabilitation Research Reports.
Overs, Robert P.; Healy, John R.
This is the final report describing a 4 year project, of which 2 years were an intensive counseling/casework demonstration with stroke patients and their families. Patients were alternately assigned to an experimental or control group; only the experimental group received intensive counseling. A comprehensive follow-up of 88 families measured differences between the groups on a newly constructed activities-of-daily-living inventory, comparisons on performance of household tasks and extent of avocational activities, and attitudes and changes in family roles. Included is a report on the outcome of the demonstration. Volume II describes, among other things, the measuring instruments which were developed. Finally, Volume III is comprised of an annotated bibliography of 26 movies about strokes, an annotated bibliography of stroke related publications, and a 316 entry regular bibliography. (Author/TL)
