Promoting exercise after stroke                                                                  

The aim of this project from the TK2A Theme of the NIHR CLAHRC YH was to explore ways to promote exercise in stroke survivors using a series of 5 co-production workshops. Participants included stroke survivors, health care professionals, exercise prescribers, social services, commissioners, medics, the voluntary sector, and students from the product design course at Sheffield Hallam University.

Five briefs emerged from the research: a marketing campaign to burst myths and promote physical activity, a video raising awareness of the benefits of promoting exercise, a staff training package, a stroke survivor's passport to access relevant and customised information and to keep one's medical record in one place, a buddy box to increase wellbeing among survivors.
