- InterventionsPatients in the treatment condition will receive Problem Solving Therapy (PST), a group training for 8 weeks, in addition to standard care. The therapy teaches patients to solve problems in a systematic way, which we expect to influence coping style and quality of life. Patients in the control condition will receive standard care only.
- Primary outcomeThe primary outcome measures are coping style and quality of life. These are measured using validated questionnaires at timepoints T0 (before intervention), T1 (after intervention), T2 (6 months after intervention) and T3 (12 months after intervention).
- Secondary outcomeThe secondary outcome measures are health care consumption, depression and participation. These are measured using validated questionnaires at timepoints T0 (before intervention), T1 (after intervention), T2 (6 months after intervention) and T3 (12 months after intervention). The cost-effectiveness of the intervention will be assesses as well.

- Brief summaryIn the Netherlands, approximately 40.000 persons a year suffer from stroke. Stroke can have consequences in all areas of a person's life. If not coped with optimally, this life event will have a negative effect on the quality of life. Coping style is a persons preferred way of dealing with different circumstances. Coping style may be influenced by intervention. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of Problem Solving Therapy, a group training to improve coping style and quality of life of stroke patients. A randomized trial will be performed to assess the effectiveness of Problem Solving Therapy.
