iADAPTS to Support Strategy Training After Stroke

2017-08-21 17:28:01 | BioPortfolio


Adherence to rehabilitation interventions is associated with functional outcomes (e.g. independence in daily activities, return of motor function) after stroke. Low adherence to rehabilitation home programs is common after stroke. Interventions delivered via mobile health applications demonstrated positive effects on adherence to health behaviors (e.g. medication routines, smoking cessation). The investigators developed the iADAPTS mobile application to support adherence to Strategy Training. Strategy Training is an iterative rehabilitation intervention the promotes goal setting, planning, and self-monitoring after stroke. This study examines the effects of the iADAPTS mobile health application relative to a workbook on adherence to Strategy Training after stroke.

This article presents a Training Diary as a strategy for professional training under the framework of a thoughtful practice. As such, it is a tool that allows access to knowledge through narrative thi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

A strategy for purchasing health care in a manner which will obtain maximum value for the price for the purchasers of the health care and the recipients. The concept was developed primarily by Alain Enthoven of Stanford University and promulgated by the Jackson Hole Group. The strategy depends on sponsors for groups of the population to be insured. The sponsor, in some cases a health alliance, acts as an intermediary between the group and competing provider groups (accountable health plans). The competition is price-based among annual premiums for a defined, standardized benefit package. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)
