The Stroke-Adapted Sickness Impact Profile (SA-SIP30 – van Straten, de Haan, Limburg, Schuling, Bossuyt, & van den Bos, 1997) was developed from the original 136-item Sickness Impact Profile (SIP-136), and assesses quality of life in patients who have sustained a stroke. The scale was developed specifically for use in stroke outcome research in order to overcome the major problem observed with the SIP-136, its length (Finch, Brooks, Stratford, & Mayo, 2002).
