Abstract

Aphasia affects approximately a third of individuals who have a stroke and a similar proportion develop depression. Depression involves subjective symptoms (e.g. worthlessness) and its diagnosis conventionally relies on verbal interviews or rating scales, which is problematic if patients have aphasia. There is a large body of depression/stroke research. Our review of this literature aimed to systematically evaluate [1] the inclusion/exclusion of patients with aphasia and [2] the reporting and appropriateness of depression diagnostic methods used for patients with aphasia.
