The purpose of this study was to test the effects of an individually focused, guided decision-making intervention on individuals' perception of self-care ability following a stroke. A convenience sample of 68 individuals participating in four stroke rehabilitation programs in southeast Florida participated in the study. A quasi-experimental design using a pretest and a posttest was implemented. Findings indicated the potential effectiveness of this intervention in significantly increasing individuals' perceptions of their self-care ability after a stroke. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
