eStrokeNav: Better Individualised Stroke Care


The aim of this research project was to better understand the transition from hospital to home for Australians who had a stroke survivors and their caregivers and to explore ways of improving this transition with the support of digital technology. The Stroke Portal (eStrokeNav) app is intended to be a key “cog” in the model of stroke care for Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) stroke survivors. The app helps stroke patients, their family and carers to navigate and access their individualised goals and recovery care plan, evidence-based stroke information and self-management tools and relevant community health and support service information.

This project was based on a co-design approach that brought together people living with stroke, caregivers, health professionals, health management, and researchers. We conducted several workshops to listen to the stories of people who have had a stroke, to generate collages to share transition experiences, and to create and comment on prototypes.
