Abstract

We aim to provide the most reliable summary of the effect of interventions targeted towards informal caregivers of stroke survivors or targeted towards informal caregivers and the care recipient (the stroke survivor). The specific questions are as follows. 1. What are the effects of interventions targeted towards informal caregivers of stroke survivors? 2. Is the evidence of benefit greater in any pre-defined subgroup?
