Over 70% of stroke survivors experience cognitive impairment, yet few survivors have access to neuropsychologists, particularly those living in non-metropolitan areas. This project explored the use of videoconferencing to provide neuropsychological services. Findings from this thesis demonstrate cognitive assessments conducted via videoconference in a sample of community-based survivors of stroke are comparable to face-to-face assessments. In addition, stroke survivors report a high degree of acceptability with videoconference assessment. This is evidence that videoconferencing is a viable option to increase access to neuropsychology services following stroke, which contribute to improved recovery and long-term outcomes.
