The Efficacy of Stroke Rehabilitation

Abstract:

Effective stroke rehabilitation programs are characterised by an interdisciplinary team working cohesively and closely to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation program for each patient. These programs vary in terms of the types of therapies offered as well as their intensity and duration. Evidence related to stroke rehabilitation effectiveness, location, management and composition is presented in this review. As well, past meta-analyses of stroke rehabilitation effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and comparison with other interventions are presented.
