What are the Unmet Needs of Young Stroke? The Perspectives of Young Stroke Survivors, Stroke Carers and Stroke Clinicians

Stroke is often viewed as a condition or disease of the elderly (Singhal et al., 2013) but 25% of stroke cases occur in individuals <60 years old (Stroke Association, 2018), and this number is increasing (Sultan & Elkind, 2013). Our study aims to investigate the unmet needs of younger stroke (<65 years old) as viewed by young stroke survivors, stroke carers (spouses, family, friends etc.), and stroke clinicians. These views will be collated together in a qualitative analytic approach to highlight trends between these three stroke-themed populations. The insight provided by these groups may be invaluable for future stroke research.
