Fatigue is common after stroke and contributes to disability, impaired quality of life, and reduced work ability. Currently, there is no evidence-based intervention for post-stroke fatigue but idiopathic chronic fatigue and burnt-out syndromes may benefit from nature-based rehabilitation. The aim of NASTRU was to examine whether ten weeks of nature-based rehabilitation, as add-on to standard management, could influence post-stroke fatigue (primary outcome), depression, work ability or functional outcome (secondary outcomes), compared to controls.
