Abstract [en]

Introduction: Health services will change dramatically as the prevalence of home healthcare increases. Only technologically advanced stroke acute care will be performed in hospitals. This, along with the rising demand for services to be more person-centred will place pressure on healthcare to consider quality across the continuum of care. Research indicates that planned discharge tailored to individual needs can reduce adverse events and promote competence in self-management. However, the environmental factors that may play a role in a patient’s recovery process remain unexplored. In this presentation, experiences and emerging findings from a research project targeting such issues will be presented. The purpose is to explore factors in the built environment that can facilitate/hinder a person-centred rehabilitation process in the home. Methods: The study uses a mixed methods design, with the ICF and person-environment theories as conceptual frameworks. Qualitative and quantitative data are currently collected from medical records and during home visits three months after stroke by use of questionnaires, interviews and observations. Workshops will be held to identify what experts and users (patients, significant others, staff) consider important in the built environment. Results: Emerging findings concerning the contexts and mechanisms that are important to support the rehabilitation process at home will be presented. Conclusions: Providing scientific knowledge that support patients’ recovery process in the home poses challenges for research that requires multidisciplinary knowledge. By bringing together international experts committed to improve care models and design, we will contribute to this under researched field and build capacity for the future.
