Family Function and Stroke Recovery

A Review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: Literature on family function in stroke rehabilitation is reviewed in 3 areas: the impact of family function on recovery from stroke, the impact of stroke on family function, and psychosocial intervention in stroke. Study Design: Literature review. Results: Family function influences stroke rehabilitation. Family-based interventions are emerging but have not been proven effective. Health system changes have expanded the family's role in stroke care, increasing the need for psychosocial intervention research. Conclusions: Family function appears to influence stroke outcomes; a family-systems perspective promotes understanding of psychosocial outcomes in stroke; research has focused mainly on individual rather than family-systems models; tools to evaluate family process after stroke are inadequate; and more research is needed to develop and test optimal family intervention strategies.
