English abstract
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of: i) a mobile phone supported family-centred intervention, F@ce, ii) the study design for evaluating the effects of the intervention on the perceived impact of stroke, perceived participation in everyday life, and self-efficacy in everyday activities among persons with stroke and their families in Uganda. Methods: A pre-post design with an intervention group (IG) and a control group (CG) (n¼30). The inclusion criteria were: confirmed stroke diagnosis, access to and ability to use a mobile phone, able to express themselves in English and/or Luganda, >18 years of age, resident in Kampala and its surroundings <40 km, and a modified Rankin Scale level 2 to 4. The F@ce entailed goalsetting and problemsolving strategies intended to improve valued activities in everyday life. The participants received daily reminders of their goals by SMS. Data was collected at baseline and after 8 weeks. Primary outcomes were performance and satisfaction of valued daily activities in everyday life assessed using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM), self-efficacy in performance of activities in daily life, and perceived impact of stroke. Results: There were differences between IG and CG in changes between baseline and follow-up in the primary outcomes in favour of IG. The SMS reminders and reports back to the occupational therapists functioned as planned with minor technical problems. Conclusion: The results support the need to further evaluate the effects of F@ce since the intervention appears to be feasible for persons with stroke and family members with some technical adjustments.
