Summary:

Coordination among nurses and rehabilitation 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:

  • Identify the stroke nurse’s role from admission to discharge
  • Discuss the role of the speech-language pathologist in treatment of speech, cognition, communication, and swallowing disorders characteristic of patients poststroke
  • Describe the role of the physical and occupational therapist in improving the functional outcomes of patients poststroke
