Food Choices After Stroke Survey

We are looking for people to complete a survey that will tell us about their food choices after stroke.

Eating well and enjoying food is an important part of living well and thriving.

It can also lower your risk of having another stroke. We also know that changing eating habits is hard and that people need help to do this.

The problem is that programs designed to help people eat well aren’t developed with the needs of stroke survivors in mind.

We would like to find out more about what you are eating now and how eating has changed for you since your stroke so that we can develop programs to help stroke survivors eat well.

What will you be asked to do?

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete two anonymous surveys

  • A Food Choices Survey – with questions about how you shop, prepare and eat foods and if that has changed since your stroke. This will take about 15 minutes
  • The Australian Eating Survey – with questions about the types and amounts of foods you usually eat. This will take around 30-40 minutes

Who can participate?

If you have had a stroke, are over the age of 18 and are living at home, here in Australia then this survey might be right for you.

You can read the participant information statement, then take the survey here: Food Choices after Stroke Survey
