Accelerating Best Practices in Peer Support Around the World

Peer Education for Secondary Stroke Prevention in Inner-City Minorities

Goldfinger and Colleagues describe a New York based stoke prevention program based on peer-led community support. The program is called Prevent Recurrence of All Inner-city Strokes through Education (PRAISE) and has enrolled 582 stroke survivors to receive the program. Curriculum was developed through focus groups of stroke survivors and using the Stanford Patient Education Research Center Chronic Disease Self-Management Program.  Participants randomized to the PRAISE intervention are scheduled to attend weekly peer-led workshops for six consecutive weeks, in ninety minute sessions.
