Abstract

Three main consequences of stroke are fatigue,
dependency in activities of daily living (ADL), and
reduced health related quality of life (HRQoL). This
study hypothesized that fatigue negatively affects HRQoL
in stroke patients, partially mediated by dependency in
ADL. This relation was estimated over time. Fatigue
surprisingly decreased dependency in ADL, and fatigue
and being dependent in ADL reduced HRQoL.
Dependency in ADL did not change over time, whereas
HRQoL decreased. The mediation effect, however, was
not significant. Therefore, the effect of fatigue on HRQoL
cannot be stated to be partially mediated by dependency
in ADL.
