Care Professionals' Perceived Usefulness Of A Rehabilitation Ehealth Service In Stroke Care

Abstract

Despite many attempts to support stroke patients, there is still room for improvement. The aim of this study is to gain insight into care professionals' perceived usefulness of an online care and rehabilitation planning tool. A functional prototype was developed and presented to a neurology team in a primary care centre in Stockholm. Three focus group meetings were conducted. The data were analysed based on the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology. The results indicate that the care professionals were positive towards the tool and described potential usefulness such as ease of understanding the rehabilitation process and support for collaboration among care providers and also cooperation between the patient and the team. They also identified challenges such as time limitation in daily care.
