Program of Rehabilitative Exercise and Education to Avert Vascular Events After Non-disabling Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack: A Multi-site RCT
Effectiveness of a Program of Rehabilitative Exercise and Education to Avert Vascular Events After Non-disabling Stroke: A Multi-site RCT

The objective of the Program of Rehabilitative Exercise and Education to avert Vascular Events after Non-disabling stroke and Transient ischemic attack (PREVENT) Trial is to determine whether the timely delivery of secondary stroke prevention strategies will reduce modifiable vascular risk factors in two groups of people who have survived NDS or TIA. One group will receive a comprehensive education and exercise program (PREVENT); the other group will receive usual care (USUAL CARE). We will measure modifiable vascular risk factors in both groups. We will also compare the effects of PREVENT vs USUAL CARE on exercise capacity, walking endurance, and daily physical activity. In addition, we will compare thinking ability, depression, achievement of personal goals for healthy behavior, and health-related goal attainment and health-related quality of life. Finally, we will compare outcomes in urban and rural settings as well as costs of the PREVENT program and USUAL CARE in order to assess sustainability of the PREVENT program.

Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
  • Transient Ischemic Attack
  • Non-disabling Stroke
  • Behavioral: PREVENT program
    12-week program of aerobic/strengthening exercises and education designed to induce physiological and behavioral changes deemed necessary to reduce vascular risk
  • Behavioral: Usual Care
    Three or more out-patient visits to the neurovascular clinic for assessment, counseling and referral to appropriate health care professionals.
  • Experimental: PREVENT program
    12-week program of exercise and education to induce physiological and behavioral changes needed to reduce vascular risk factors.
    Intervention: Behavioral: PREVENT program
  • Active Comparator: Usual Care
    Average of three visits to the Neurovascular Clinic for a neurological and health assessment, counseling regarding stroke/TIA and diagnostic test results, and assessment, modification and education of secondary prevention factors
    Intervention: Behavioral: Usual Care
