Current research shows that interdisciplinary interventions focusing on patient experience and patient education enable health-care providers to activate and empower patients, potentially leading to better clinical outcomes. Tool kit approaches have been successfully used to aid patients through ongoing education after hospital discharge and to improve patient experience. In this article, we describe our efforts to iteratively develop and test personalized stroke management tool kits aimed at connecting stroke survivors and their caregivers to empowering resources, while soliciting feedback from patients and family members.
