COMPARING COMPENSATORY AND RESTORATIVE APPROACHES TO MEMORY REHABILITATION FOLLOWING STROKE
thesisposted on 2018-07-29, 23:51 authored by TONI DIANNE WITHIEL
Memory impairment is commonly experienced following stroke yet remains a high unmet need within the community. Two approaches have been used to rehabilitate memory: group compensation and computerised restoration. Despite decades of research into each respective approach, there is no clear consensus on how to best rehabilitate memory. This thesis sought to address this gap by exploring and contrasting restorative and compensatory approaches to memory rehabilitation following stroke. Using a mixed methodology approach, this study provides preliminary evidence that group compensation may be more more effective and enjoyable than computerised restoration in remediating everyday memory failures.
