Course Description and Statement of Need

Stroke continues to be the leading cause of long term disability. This course will focus on the latest research and clinical advances impacting the acute managment and the rehabilitation of stroke patients, including research in the field of neuroscience and motor learning. Practical applications will be discussed, as well as evidence surrounding specific interventions. Topics will include the golden hour of recovery, neuroplasticity, post-stroke depression, as well as the use of technology and emerging data being collected on readmissions.
