HumanInsight Study protocol of a non-randomised controlled trial evaluating the effectiveness of the F@ce 2.0 programme: a person-centred, ICT-supported and interdisciplinary rehabilitation intervention after stroke
BMJ Open. 2022 Aug 4;12(8):e058748. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2021-058748.
INTRODUCTION: Knowledge is missing on use of information and communication technology (ICT), for example, mobile phones/tablets in rehabilitation after stroke. F@ce 2.0 is a person-centred, interdisciplinary intervention supported by ICT. The components of F@ce 2.0 intend to increase performance in daily activities and participation in everyday life for patients with stroke and their significant others. Based on previous feasibility studies, a full-scale evaluation is planned in Sweden. The aim is to implement and evaluate F@ce 2.0, regarding performance of daily activities and participation in everyday life, in comparison with ordinary rehabilitation among persons who have had stroke and significant others. Second, to increase knowledge about how the programme leads to a potential change by studying the implementation process and mechanisms of impact.
METHODS AND ANALYSIS: Twelve rehabilitation teams (intervention n=7; control n=5) will recruit patients (n=160) who receive rehabilitation at home after stroke and their significant others. F@ce 2.0 is an 8-week intervention where patients, together with the team, formulate three activity goals regarding what they need and want to do in daily lives. The patients will receive short messages service (SMS) each morning reminding about goals, and in the evening to rate their performance during the day. Primary outcomes for patients: self-efficacy measured by the Self-Efficacy Scale; perceived performance in daily activities measured by the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure. Significant others: perceived caregiver burden measured by Caregiver Burden Scale. Qualitative interviews with team members delivering, patients receiving intervention and significant others will explore experiences of F@ce 2.0. A process evaluation applying a case-study design using mixed methods will be conducted.
ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: Approved by the Swedish Ethical Review Authority, Stockholm. Knowledge will be created for using ICT for rehabilitation of people after stroke in self-selected activities. Dissemination will include peer-reviewed publications, presentations at conferences, and information to stakeholders.
