New Patient Education Program
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.
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.
