BMJOPEN2015008888F1: HeART of Stroke (HoS) study flow chart.

Mentions: This is a 24-month two-centre parallel arm pragmatic randomised controlled feasibility study of a HoS group plus usual care compared with usual care alone (see figure 1), with nested economic and qualitative components. We are using a usual care comparator in order that the future trial will reflect real-world effectiveness of this complex intervention. A nested qualitative interview study will provide insights into individuals’ experiences of participating and the acceptability of study processes, the HoS intervention and outcome measures. The feasibility economic component will enable us to pilot methods to collect intervention costs and resource utilisation to inform the future trial design and within-trial economic evaluation. These trial processes will be tested for a follow-up period of 5 months postrandomisation. The definitive trial would include longer follow-up to capture the longer term health and economic benefits of treatment delivery.
