Objective: Successful community integration involves active participation in the community, broadly defined as having independence, relationships, and engagement in meaningful activities. This review aims to identify the literature focusing on community integration of individuals with stroke aged 18 years and older in the community over the past two decades. Methods: This review will be based on the methodological framework given by Arksey and O’Malley (2005). We will include studies from SCOPUS, PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, CINAHL, EBSCO, ClinicalKey, Wiley Online, ProQuest, and Cochrane Library databases published from January 2000 onwards. Both quantitative and qualitative data will be analyzed separately to identify various assessments, interventions, and factors that influence the community integration of individuals with stroke. Conclusion: This scoping review will help to explore studies focusing on community integration among individuals with stroke aged 18 and older living in the community. It can further assist professionals who are addressing the concerns of individuals with stroke in the community.
