Talking about the emotional and physical issues people face
after a stroke can be difficult. Stroke Touchpoint cards enable optimum use of
appointment or meeting time, by creating person centred conversations around
issues important to the patient and staff member.
The patient and health professional both select cards from
the pack which represents issues they want to discuss, and the number selected
can vary depending on time available. This essentially helps structure the
conversation, setting out what will be covered and ensuring the patient gets
maximum benefit from the appointment. It can also help give “permission” for
subjects to be discussed which patients may feel anxious or even embarrassed to
bring up without the cards as a prompt.
Designed specifically for stroke patients, with a simple
design to aid cognition and featuring common issues experiences after a stroke
cards explore a variety of issues important in stroke aftercare:
