Weight-gain after stroke

Weight-gain after stroke

Introduction: Recent research shows that weight-gain is a problem for some people after stroke.  This project considered how to improve weight management services for stroke survivors in Sheffield.  The aim was to identify interventions, actions or products that could improve current provision and patient experience.

Method: The various groups involved were stroke survivors and carers; staff from the stroke pathway; and public and third sector service providers.  Firstly, we met to discuss the current stroke services and develop a map of weight management stroke service.  Secondly, co-production took place.  Two workshops were held collaboratively generate ideas for services and resources.
