Summary:

Early management and rehabilitation after stroke requires an interprofessional approach by a coordinated team of healthcare professionals that includes nurses, speech-language pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists. Coordination among these professionals is imperative to improving the lives and outcomes of patients after a stroke. Each specialty has important, unique functions to perform requiring careful management by a unified team. This module will focus on the role of nurses, speech-language pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists both as an individual healthcare discipline and as a team member in the care of patients following stroke.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to provide healthcare professionals with information about an interprofessional approach to care of patients after stroke. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the stroke nurse’s role from admission to discharge
  • Discuss the role of speech-language pathology in treatment of speech, communication and swallowing disorders characteristic of patients poststroke
  • Describe the role of physical and occupational therapy in improving the functional outcomes of patients poststroke
