Nurses play a pivotal role in stroke self-management, yet there is a gap in our understanding of the perspectives of, and challenges faced, by stroke nurses in relation to the development, implementation and effect of stroke self-management support services. This article describes the qualitative findings from a recent study that aimed to develop, pilot and evaluate a nurse-led, person-centred stroke self-management support intervention. The findings may help inform the future design and delivery of such support, and will increase understanding of the issues and challenges that nurses face in delivering it in clinical practice.
