Abstract

This Quick Reference Guide for Clinicians contains highlights from Post-Stroke Rehabilitation, Clinical Practice Guideline No. 16, which was developed by a multidisciplinary, private-sector panel comprised of health care professionals and a consumer representative. The Quick Reference Guide for Clinicians is an example of how a clinician might implement the panel's findings and recommendations on the overall management of stroke patients who need post-stroke rehabilitation programs or services before returning to a family or other living environment. Topics include medical management of patients, systematic assessment and evaluation of patients throughout acute care and rehabilitation, referring patients to appropriate rehabilitation programs, managing the rehabilitation process, discharging patients from rehabilitation programs, and reintegrating patients into family and community environments.
