New Patient Education Program

LEAP program logo

LEAP, the Lifelong Education and Advocacy Program educates stroke survivors and caregivers at your hospital or rehab facility about stroke and more importantly, on how to “rehab” their bodies and minds after a stroke. Research has shown that well-organized, multidisciplinary education improves stroke rehab outcomes.

LEAP helps participants identify stroke causes and impacts and understand recurrent prevention strategies and rehabilitation options. Teach your patients strategies to maximize recovery, including nutrition, medication management and dealing with emotional changes.

All the materials to successfully host LEAP will be online in August.

Register for this webinarJoin us on July 30 at 1 p.m. EDT for a live webinar on marketing the LEAP program.

The program is supported by an educational grant from Allergan, Inc., Genentech, Inc. and Patterson Foundation.
