Webinar: Driving Rehabilitation Following Stroke

Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations Webinar Invitation:
Webinar: Discussing Driving Rehabilitation Following Stroke

The Heart & Stroke Canadian Stroke Best Practice Rehabilitation and Managing Transitions of Stroke Care Recommendations provide specific guidance for healthcare professionals on the recovery and resumption of life roles after stroke. Stroke survivors often experience motor, cognitive and psychosocial changes that impact their ability to resume pre stroke pursuits. Return to driving, return to work and vocational pursuits, sexual activity and leisure activities have each been cited as important rehabilitation goals for patients and evidence indicates that the resumption of these activities are associated with increased quality of life.  During this webinar participants will learn more about the recommendations, research, and practical approaches for returning to driving.   

Date:  Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 3:00pmEST – 4:00pmEST

Presenters: Michael Cammarata OT, PhD Student & Nellemarie Hyde, OT, CDRS
