First Focus Group

At the end of April, Nicky Brosnan and I ran a focus group at a support group in Sunderland which was set up by the Stroke Association. With around 9-10 people attending, we got the chance to hear everyone's stories and experiences of psychological adjustment after stroke.

The focus group was a great success and as well as confirming many of our ideas about what training would be needed, some new themes came out of the group which we perhaps hadn't considered before, or hadn't realised the impact of. Some of the themes which came from the group can be found in the "documents" section, as well as quotes from group members.
