The project has the aim to develop, implement and transfer innovative practices related to physical activity enhancing health in frail individuals, such as post-stroke patients.
In comparison with acute medical care, longer-term management and support of stroke patients have not been as well researched to identify unmet clinical needs, best practices, or to describe what is being provided by each health system.
Physical activity and exercise are highly recommended in the chronic phase to sustain functions gained in post-stroke rehabilitation and as part of long-term secondary prevention to reduce the risk of recurrent stroke and other vascular events.
The huge variability in residual impairment after stroke in the different patients and the need to meet the preference of patients to maintain a long-term adherence, justify a tailored counseling for physical activity programs. Different forms of physical activities will be evaluated in the course of the project allowing to each patient to find his own way to improve his quality of life, contributing at the same time to long-term secondary prevention, taking into consideration, in a realistic way, the solutions available. This is the reason why the project name is: MY WAY.
