Carepartner Collaborative Integrated Therapy in Sub-Acute Stroke

Clinical Trial ID: NCT04040751

Description

A novel, web-based carepartner focused intervention (CARE-CITE) is designed to foster problem solving and skill building while facilitating carepartner engagement during upper extremity functional activities in the home setting. The proposed study will evaluate the application of the CARE-CITE intervention paired with usual and customary care during the sub-acute stroke.

Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability and to date, research has placed little emphasis on how to integrate carepartners (family members) into the rehabilitation process without increasing negative carepartner outcomes. A novel, web-based carepartner focused intervention (CARE-CITE) is designed to foster problem solving and skill building while facilitating carepartner engagement during upper extremity functional activities in the home setting. The proposed study will evaluate the application of the CARE-CITE intervention paired with usual and customary care during the sub-acute stroke.
