Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen:
In this project the overall objective was to explore perceived quality of life (QOL) and functioning following stroke in two Scandinavian country-regions with different organisation of subacute rehabilitation services with a mixed methods approach. Description of acute and subacute stroke rehabilitation services revealed better organised municipality-based rehabilitation in the Danish region, and more use of in-patient rehabilitation in the North Norwegian region. The levels of functioning measured by the SS-QOL scale, showed that the participants from the Danish region reported more functional problems in the SS-QOL scale and in the two components scales after adjustments for predefined covariates. The in-depth interviews revealed that the process of reconstructing the embodied self through progress or adjustments was an essential part of recovery and quality of life, thus bringing forward an understanding of QOL as a dynamic, relational and situational phenomenon that includes more than functioning. Enriching social relations, resumption of valued activities and professional support during the recovery process positively influenced reconstruction of the embodied self and QOL. Fatigue and sustained reduced function were described to negatively affect QOL. This study found that the Norwegian version of the SS-QOL scale is a reliable and valid instrument with good psychometric properties, and suited for use both in individual assessments and in health research. The two country-regions differed in descriptions of continuity and support from the follow-up services during the recovery process, indicating benefits from the well-organized community-based rehabilitation in Central Denmark. Nevertheless, the quantitative results showed a statistically significant difference in the SS-QOL scores in favour of the North-Norwegian participants. Participants from both regions experienced significant more problems within cognitive, social and mental functioning than with physical functions, indicating that longer-term functional improvements following mild and moderate stroke could benefit from rehabilitation services particularly addressing these areas of functioning in both country-regions.
