Abstract

Background and Objectives: Stroke is the third leading cause of death in developed countries. It can also lead to a variety of neurological defects. Regarding the significance of rehabilitation in diminishing the complications, the present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of rehabilitation on life quality of patients suffering from stroke in Sahrekord in 2004. Materials and Methods: This two-step quasi - experimental study (before and after) was carried out on 30 inpatients suffering from stroke who had been selected by simple sampling and were qualified to enter the research. The data were collected using the four - domain life quality questionnaire (physical - Mentalgeneral health and social performance) before and after intervention. To analyse the data descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and analytical statistics (Paired t-test, wilcoxon and independent t-test) were used. Results: The results revealed that mean score of life quality in physical, mental, and social performance, and general health domains improved significantly following the rehabilitation measures (P=0.05). Moreover, the overall life quality increased significantly after rehabilitation compared to the period before (P=0.05). Conclusion: Rehabilitation affects different aspects f life quality positively. Establishment and strengthening the rehabilitation, educational and supportive centers provides the patients with better access to these measures and might be a step forward to their independence.
