Understanding the Experience of Early Supported Discharge from the Perspective of Patients with Stroke and Their Carers and Health Care Providers: A Qualitative Review

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

A systematic review of qualitative studies that examined the experience of early supported discharge (ESD) from the perspective of patients with stroke and their caregivers and health care providers revealed an emphasis on psychosocial aspects—the patient-provider relationship, the value of the home environment, and the ability to tailor treatment to meet patient-oriented goals. Patients, caregivers, and providers stressed the importance of clear and systematic communication throughout the ESD process to support transitions, prevent duplication of services, foster trust in relationships, and ensure that patients and caregivers have the knowledge and skills required to manage a chronic condition long term.
