Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Among Medicare patients discharged with a stroke diagnosis: 24% are discharged to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, 31% are discharged to a skilled nursing facility, and among those discharged home 32% require home health services. Rehabilitation after stroke is a lifelong process requiring input from a multidisciplinary team.
In response to the opportunity for improved care across transitions in relation to rehabilitation services and the request of past participants, the 6th Annual Stroke Symposium will address topics related to rehabilitation after stroke.
This course is designed for physicians practicing in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. Advanced practice nurses, staff nurses, physical and occupational therapists and other healthcare professionals involved in the prevention and treatment of stroke are also welcome to attend.
