Questions:
8. What are four consistent themes identified that describe features of emotional recovery from stroke?
9. Why did some stroke patients feel resigned to accepting a passive role in interaction with hospital staff, particularly in the early stages of their stroke?
10. How does McEachron define rehabilitation?

12. What have many studies found concerning the relationship between PSD and mortality?

15. What does Bury argue about the effects of serious, chronic illness?
16. According to Ouimet, a patient with major or minor depression after stroke is how much more likely to die, compared with patients without depression?
17. What may the lack of association between PSD and the sex of the patient indicate, considering the sex prevalence of depression in the general population has a  female: male ratio of 2:1?

Answers:
A.  Bury argues that serious, chronic illness disrupts the normal pattern of personal development creating a ‘biographical discontinuity’ and individuals respond to such challenges by making sense and ‘normalizing’ their new situation.
B.  52% of patients with depression following stroke were found to have no significant functional disability.
C. Four themes are uncertainty, hope, loss of control, and anger/frustration.
D.  1. Identifying the patient's trajectory phase and setting goals.  2. Assessing the factors likely to influence trajectory management (including resource and environmental constraints, and biographical factors). 3. Determining which factors are to be targeted for manipulation.  4.  Implementing the appropriate nursing interventions and evaluating their effectiveness.
E. The lack of association could indicate that brain injury affects men and women differently due to sex-based differences in brain organization and that greater biological predisposition in women is opposed to nonbiological factors associated with depression in poststroke men (for example, issues of physical impairment and social support), which could decrease the prevalence gap.
F. Stroke is considered to be an exceptional illness that fits the bereavement model because of the suddenness of onset, the uncertainty of the future and the length of time it took to make a recovery.
G. Rehabilitation is defined as a dynamic process of planned adaptive change in lifestyle in response to unplanned change imposed on the individual by disease or traumatic incident. The focus is not cure, but on living with as much freedom and autonomy as possible at every stage and in which ever direction the disability progresses.
H.  Some patients felt resigned because of their perceptions of the importance of knowledge held by the professionals who were working for them.
I.  A number of studies have reported increased mortality in patients suffering from PSD. Depending on the time of diagnosis of PSD, the odds ratios vary between 1.5 and 2.6. It has been found that there is an association even after 1-2 years.
J.  Major and minor depression in stroke patients were associated with a 3.4 times higher risk of dying, compared with patients without depression.
