People’s experiences of the impact of transient ischaemic attack and its consequences: qualitative study
NHS England is not responsible for content on external websites.
The study found that having a TIA changed people’s quality of life and their perception of their health, despite the transience of the symptoms. The ability of people to make positive health changes after a TIA to some extent ameliorated the negative effects of being aware of their heightened stroke risk. Their appreciation of their quality of life may also be enhanced.
