Every year about 41.000 people suffer a stroke in The Netherlands. Cognitive complaints are common after stroke and can continue long after the acute phase has been passed. The principal question which will be addressed in this study is whether professionals should take cognitive complaints of stroke patients seriously. In other words, are cognitive complaints temporary? Can early cognitive complaints predict subsequent cognitive deterioration? Which variables are important to take into account when attempting to assess these relationships (e.g. emotional complaints, personality, coping)? A group of patients and matched healthy controls will be followed on a wide range of (potentially) important variables for a period of up to two years.

The results of this study can hopefully improve not only prognosis after stroke, but also potentially applied to improving existing treatments. The study is therefore relevant not only to add to the scientific knowledge about peoples experiences following a stroke, but has also a clinically-relevant and (potentially) practical application.
