Development of an online mindfulness program for stroke survivors and their caregivers
This study aims to test the satisfaction and ease-of-use of an online mindfulness program. The program is specifically designed to increase mindfulness for stroke survivors and their caregivers or loved ones. We are particularly interested to obtain feedback on the content of the program and the website used to offer it. The feedback and suggestions will help us to create a final version that is easy to understand and relevant for stroke survivors and caregivers. This study will be done virtually (no face-to-face visit).
