Background and Objectives: Stroke has an unexpected and destructive effect on patients' lives and affects their quality of life. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of life and its related factors in patients with stroke in Tabriz city. Material and Methods: This was a descriptive-analytic, cross-sectional study. The study population consisted of all patients who visited the neurological department of the Razi Hospital in 2015 with a diagnosis of stroke in Tabriz city. The quality of life in 72 patients was assessed by the quality of life questionnaire (SIS-16) using census method. To evaluate the relationship of quality of life with demographic variables and clinical features, one-way ANOVA and t-test were applied using SPSS (version 23) software. Results: In this study, the mean of total quality of life score was 73.66 ± 29.18.
