Breakfast Club Lecture 3 2017

Breakfast Club Lecture 3 2017

Stroke has been described as a double crisis because survivors and families are faced with both the need to adapt to the physical, cognitive and emotional consequences of the stroke and the need to negotiate a foreign culture – the health care system.

The aim of this project was to gain some understanding of how stroke survivors and their family carers have experienced the stroke care continuum. In her lecture, Professor Jacinta Douglas, Summer Foundation Research Chair of Living Well with Acquired Brain Injury at La Trobe University, will discuss how the care experience emerged as a process comprising a series of phases that could both overlap and re-occur.
