Primary Outcome Measures:
  • physical scale of the Stroke Impact Scale 3.0 [ Time Frame: before discharge from acute care, four weeks after discharge from the hospital or rehabilitation (in case of referral to a medical rehabilitation) immediately before randomization (baseline assessment), and 12 months after randomization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Case management
Case management with patient-information-notes, telephone hotline, individual counselling using home visits, e-mail and telephone contact, web portal
Behavioral: Case management
Case management with patient-information-notes, telephone hotline, individual counselling using home visits, e-mail and telephone contact, web portal

Behavioral: Case management
Usual stroke aftercare plus patient-information-notes

Detailed Description:

In a randomized trial, the project Participative rehabilitation process management "Stroke in Saxony-Anhalt" (PaReSiS) implements a case management trial, explicitly including all providers in the course of illness, treatment and rehabilitation. To achieve this, patients in the intervention group have the opportunity to choose, specifically and according to their own needs, from the offers of a web portal and a telephone hotline, from individual counselling and info sessions as well as from home visits. Patients in the control group receive patient-information-notes beyond primary care. There will be qualitative interviews with the persons concerned and/or their relatives in both groups in order to validate the instruments.
