I am a PenCLAHRC funded PhD student and I am looking at adherence to exercise rehabilitation programmes in individuals that have had a stroke once they are back home. The eventual outcome is that I will create a questionnaire that will be valid and reliable as has been done in the medication adherence literature with questionnaires such as the Medication Adherence Questionnaire (MAQ) and the Medication Adherence Rating Scale (MARS). To this end, interviews will be conducted with stroke survivors, physiotherapists and exercise professionals. The issues raised will then become items in the pilot questionnaire which will be subjected to comments for improvement from other stroke survivors, physiotherapists and exercise professionals to ensure items they deem important are captured. The questionnaire will then undergo more substantial pilot testing and reliability and validity testing to ensure it is as robust as possible.
