Abstract

Having a stroke changes patients’ and their relatives’ lives fundamentally. They need to alter their way of living and learn to adapt to their new situation as fast as possible. Stroke is the most common cause of disability for adults worldwide, which leads to enormous societal healthcare costs and patient’s reduced quality of life. Each patient needs individualized information that is adapted to their current situation. New technologies can support people seeking health information individually. Therefore, this paper proposes a software system for stroke patients and their care-giving relatives that supports the learn process by means of informal learning. The contribution of the paper is twofold. First, it introduces the software system that incorporates an online portal with individual information for stroke patients and their care-giving relatives. Second, it presents an IT-architecture that supports stroke patients and allows to measure effects of different learning strategies.
