Long-Term Outcome after Stroke: A Disability-Orientated Approach.
Hochstenbach, J.; And Others
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v19 n3 p189-200 Sep 1996
Patients (N=165) under 75 who had suffered a stroke in the past 5 years completed a Sickness Impact Profile. Analysis of results indicated the influence of stroke on everyday functioning. Chronic psychosocial disabilities, independent of the degree of physical disability, were reported in fifty-two percent of the patients. This psychosocial dysfunction hindered the patients from re-establishing quality of life. (Author/DB)
