Description: The presentation outlines findings from a qualitative study which explored barriers and enablers to adherence to an intensive upper limb exercise program in stroke survivors. Findings can help clinicians to develop and implement exercise programs that improve adherence, and ultimately outcomes following stroke. References can be viewed on the final slide. No handout /PPT slides are available.

Learning objectives: By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the experience (barriers and enablers) of stroke survivors who participate in intensive exercise programs following stroke
  • Understand the COM-B model as a means of diagnosing behavioural issues (such as adherence)
  • Identify potential BC strategies (interventions) to address barriers to adherence
