Clear and too the point, I am not sure if there was a video to go along it was no apparent and I merely read the required text versus a video which I prefer.

Though Registered Dietitian was included on this CEU learning list, I felt this information was more geared towards nursing. Informational for the RD, but not much to apply to current day to day nutrition care.

This is overall a good introduction to stroke care for multiple practitioners. However if you have been practicing in the Acute Stroke Unit for some time then this primarily reinforces your knowledge.
