Stroke Rehabilitation - Evidence Based Practice
3.4 out of 4.0, Based on: 661 reviews
Stroke is a leading cause of disability in the United States. Forty percent of stroke patients are left with moderate unctional impairment and 15% to 30% with severe disability. Effective rehabilitation interventions initiated early after stroke can enhance the recovery process and minimize functional disability. Improved functional outcomes for patients also contribute to patient satisfaction and can reduce potentially costly long-term care expenditures. Substantial evidence indicates that patients do better with a well-organized, multidisciplinary approach to post-acute stroke care. This course provides an overview of evidence-based evaluations and interventions.
