CONCLUSION: Post-stroke depressive symptoms form a complex and multifactorial problem. Treatment outcome is influenced by the characteristics of the stroke, the patient, and their spouse. The results show that psychological distress is probably no obstacle to attempting to improve participation. The personalized predictions (prognostic index scores) of treatment outcome show promising results, which, after further replication and validation, could aid clinicians with treatment selection.
