We are inviting stroke survivors and their partners to participate in a study on everyday health behaviours. The main goal of this study is to understand how partners may shape each other’s health behaviours (like physical activity and diet) post stroke, and how partners can contribute to each other’s health. The results of our study will generate new knowledge that will be directly applicable to the daily lives of stroke survivors and provide a foundation for future behavioural interventions to promote the health of couples.

If you complete all study components, you will receive a health feedback letter that includes health measurements you complete with us. Couples participating in the study will also be able to keep one tablet between them or they can choose to receive monetary reimbursement for their time.

Our locations are at UBC and the Heart and Stroke Foundation Vancouver office (1216 West Broadway). At the moment, we are mainly recruiting participants in metropolitan Vancouver and other areas in the Lower Mainland. We are also recruiting participants in other areas in British Columbia, such as Prince George, the Interior, and Vancouver Island. Feel free to contact us if you live in any of these areas and are interested in taking part in the study.

If you and your partner are interested in participating in this study and want to find out about your eligibility, please give us a call at 604-822-3549 or send us an email at pulse@psych.ubc.ca
