Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, noon EST

The Controversies in Stroke Care series continues with a focus on rehabilitation.

Register for this webinar

This webinar will explore the divergent opinions regarding rehabilitative therapies for stroke survivors. Should the focus be on intensity of activities or quality of performance? What is the best timing for therapeutic intervention? Which delivery methods are optimal?

Pamela S. Roberts, PhD, CPHQ, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, will moderate. Dr. Elliot J. Roth, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Dr. Richard D. Zorowitz, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Baltimore, will offer the differing points of view.

Supported by an independent educational grant from Genentech, Inc. and supported by Penumbra, Inc.
