Memory deficits occur frequently after stroke. In general, functional recovery of these deficits is hard to achieve. Therefore, this study aims to determine the effectiveness of a Memory Self-efficacy training for patients after chronic stroke. 153 Patients were included and radomized between a MSE-training program and a control peer support group. Patients under 65 years of age improved significantly on MSE and psychological quality of life after the experimental MSE-training in comparison to the control group and these effects remained stable over one year after training.
