Web-Based My Guide for Stroke Recovery
With the successful dissemination of 1000 copies of My Guide for Stroke Recovery since December 2015, the Toronto Stroke Networks responded to requests from persons with stroke and healthcare providers to adapt this resource to a web-based format.
The mobile-friendly website will be launched in Fall 2016. It allows persons with stroke and family/caregivers to easily navigate information about common post-stroke topics and find practical strategies, video demonstrations and actionable solutions to common questions or concerns after stroke.
The layout and content of the website were designed to empower a self-management approach and facilitate community re-engagement. The web design was grounded on global accessibility standards, incorporating elements of health literacy, adult learning principles, and contrast visibility. Twenty-three persons with stroke reviewed the website to validate that it is comprehensive, user-friendly and useful.
