Rehabilitation Complications and Barriers Following Stroke


Amy Nichols

What You Will Learn

Unfortunately setbacks can occur when a patient is recovering from a stroke, leading to readmissions and further debilitation. Luckily, research and data have shown that some of these barriers can be prevented or held to a minimum with the proper intervention from the healthcare team. By attending this workshop, you will learn about early mobilization following stroke and what to look for when caring for stroke survivors, from the acute stages all the way to home care.

Social workers, LMHTs, LPCs, LCPCs and registered dieticians will earn 3 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 3 (RC). APRNs, RNs, and LPNs may self-submit to KSBN. Approved for 2.75 contact hours for OTs and PTs.
