You are invited to take part in this master’s level research study being carried out by a student at the University of Derby as part of their Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy, which is aiming to explore the lived experiences of young people who have had a stroke and how this impacts their identity.
The number of younger people experiencing strokes is increasing, meaning more young people are experiencing the many different life changing impacts it can have, including changes to how you do your daily activities such as washing, dressing and cooking, or hobbies such as leisure activities or work.
I would like to understand how these changes to daily life have also affected you and your identity, so that health care professionals can understand the different needs of young people who have had a stroke and how this can help aid recovery.
