Intimacy After Stroke – CSBPR Webinar Series

 

Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations Webinar Invitation 

Join us for an upcoming  webinar series discussing the resumption of life roles and activities 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 three part webinar series participants will learn more about the recommendations, research, and practical approaches for returning to driving, return to work and vocational pursuits, and sexual activity during recovery after stroke.  Participants will hear directly from experts in this area.
