Can interventions that provide information improve outcomes for patients with stroke or their carers?
Studies selected compared information interventions intended to improve patient or carer outcomes with standard care in patients with stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and their carers. Trials that compared information and another treatment with the other treatment alone were also included. Trials were excluded if information was only 1 component of a more complex rehabilitation intervention. Outcomes included mood (eg, depression or anxiety), activities of daily living, quality of life, service use, and death.
