Stroke, the fifth ranking cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the U.S., is the country’s primary neurological problem. Each year, about 795,000 people have a new or recurrent stroke, costing more than $34 billion in medical care and disability. Risk factors, characteristics of left- and right-hemispheric strokes, and appropriate rehabilitation goals are discussed.


The goal of this stroke continuing education module is to help nurses and physical therapists differentiate between identification, treatment and care of patients with left- and right-hemispheric strokes. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • List modifiable and nonmodifiable risk factors of stroke
  • Identify neurological deficits associated with left- and right-hemispheric strokes
  • List appropriate goals of rehabilitation for a patient who has had a stroke
