Factors influencing participation in cardiac rehabilitation and exercise classes in stroke survivors

This research will be investigating the factors influencing your participation in exercise classes (cardiac rehabilitation or ANY similar class) post-stroke.

It will involve you taking part in a one-off interview (approximately 45 minutes), where we will be asking you about YOUR experiences. This interview will be conducted remotely… so you won’t even need to leave the comfort of your own home! As a thank you for your participation, all participants will be entered into a prize draw following completion of the interview.

We hope this research will help us to improve the rehabilitation experience amongst stroke survivors in the future.
