Brief description There are major problems in Australia and overseas of patients not receiving evidence-based care. In the first 3 months after a stroke, receiving more therapy helps people improve. People in stroke rehabilitation should receive 3 hours therapy/day, but this does not usually happen. This project will use rigorous research methods to work with stroke survivors, their carers and staff in rehabilitation hospitals to find the best way to ensure that each stroke survivor does 3 hours of practice/day.
