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.

Participants will hear directly from experts in this area.
