Does the Australian Eating Survey work for Stroke Survivors?

Researchers from the Hunter Medical Research Institute are seeking Stroke survivors over the age of 18 years who live at home in Australia, to participate in their research project.

Eating  well  after  Stroke   will   lower  your  risk  of  having  another  Stroke  in  the  future, but this is easier said than done! To   help  us  create  programs   that   support  Stroke  survivors  to  eat  well,  we need to know what your current diet looks like.

For this study, we would like to find out whether the tools we usually use to measure your diet work well for Stroke survivors.

What will you be asked to do?

  1. Complete the online Australian Eating Survey (15 demographic questions and 120 questions about the foods you usually eat).
  2. Complete a 3-day Weighed Food Record – you will measure and write down everything you eat or drink for 3 days.

We will compare the survey and the food record and see if they are the same or different – this will tell us whether the survey works for Stroke survivors.

Who can participate?

Anyone who is over 18 years old, has experienced a Stroke and lives at home in Australia.
