Survey about motivation, mood and abilities after stroke

Thu 09 May 2019

Researchers at the University of East Anglia are looking for stroke survivors to take part in an internet survey about motivation, mood and abilities after stroke. Anyone who is 18 or over and has ever been admitted to hospital following a stroke is very welcome to take part.

Stroke can cause a loss of motivation, interest and concern known as apathy, thought to affect as many as a quarter of stroke survivors. Apathy can be a barrier to their stroke rehabilitation, as it can make it harder for them to find the motivation to take part in treatment. It also affects everyday life, making it harder for them to look after themselves or do everyday tasks. Despite this, apathy is not always assessed after stroke and it is unclear what the best way to understand and assess this is.

Our research will help decide if a particular apathy questionnaire would be a useful assessment for stroke survivors, to detect and make sense of difficulties with motivation. You can decide if you want to take part in the survey or not – the research is completely voluntary and will not affect your care. All your answers will be confidential and stored in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you would like to take part, please email for more information. You do not need to have problems with motivation to take part.

If you choose to take part in the study, you can choose to be entered into a prize draw where you could win one of five £25 Amazon vouchers.
