Abstract:   (3702 Views)
Background: The participation of patients in their private and social affairs plays a crucial role in decreasing disability and improving quality of life. The present study was conducted to determine the rate of stroke patient Participation and Autonomy in their private and social life in Rafsanjan in 2017.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive study included all Iranian stroke patients referring Ali Ibn Abi Talib Hospital in Rafsanjan in 2017, the total number of whom surmounted up to 100 subjects. A Persian version of Impact on Participation and Autonomy scale was used. Finally, collected data was analyzed using independent t-test and one way ANOVA.
Results: The results of the present research showed 37 subjects (38.1%) in the dimension of social life turned out to be at the optimum level. The dimensions of participation with people with poor income, except for autonomy in out-of-home duties and lower educational level, were statistically more than the role played by social life, duration of illness and severity of illness  )P< 0.05).
Conclusion: The present research showed that more than half of patients suffering from stroke turned out to be quite functioning in private and social affairs, a point which turned out to be quite directly related to income and education level. While investigating the important factors affecting the participation of patients, it is highly recommended for researchers to determine the factors affecting the participation of the patients in order to improve the quality of life through providing necessary training, better health care and rehabilitation.
