This paper presents a quasi-experimental research study with its aim of studying the effects of a Hope Promotion Program on the Hope Index of stroke patients during the post-acute phase at a secondary care hospital in Kanchanaburi Province. The researcher used the program which was developed from a study of factors that create hope and promote adaptation in patients with stroke along with the guideline for enhancing hope of American Association of Stroke. The sample of this study consisted of 60 stroke patients. They were

randomly assigned to the control group (n=30) and an experimental group (n=30). The control group received routine nursing care while the experimental group received the Hope Promotion Program during the post-acute phase. Research data were collected by the the hope assessment developed by Herth as compiled and translated in English by Jirawan with a content validity index of 0.89. Data were analyzed using descriptive Chi-square and repeated-measures ANOVA. The results revealed that the mean score of the Hope Index in stroke patients during the post-acute phase of the experimental group was significantly higher than those of the control group (p< 0.05). Based on the results of this research, the Hope Promotion Program can promote hope in stroke patients during the post-acute phase.
