The primary aim of the Recovery-focused Community Support to Avoid readmissions and improve Participation after Stroke (ReCAPS) is to reduce emergency department presentations and hospital readmissions within 90 days post hospital discharge.
This Phase III randomised controlled clinical trial will provide important evidence about the potential effectiveness of a personalised innovative discharge support program that comprises:
- a discharge care planning pack with standardised Recovery Goal Setting for use by clinicians and patients; and
- technology-based tools with integrated SMS/email messaging gateway permitting personalised and tailored messages based on patient nominated goals (iVERVE).
The figure below illustrates the ReCAPS trial design.
