Self-management following stroke

Sara Joice wrote the article mentioned above, published in ‘Nursing Standard’ February 1st, vol 26, no. 22, 2012

The article defines the concept of self-management and describes psychological theories and emerging behavior change techniques that nurses can use to promote positive self-care in patients who have had a stroke.

Given the present challenges of reduced governmental resources in practice and care, design solutions is in a prime position to incorporate a wide range of behavior change techniques that can be tailored individual stroke patients – this to support individuals and their families to self-manage following stroke.

The necessety to indulge self-management, the meaning of self-managment, theory  and challenges in applying, creates a need to design for. Therefore the article gives a great introduction, to a modern and holistic attitude in self-management, towards stroke patients lead by design approaches, when designing for a stroke patient!
