Description

Watch the webinar

The Stroke Clinical Network is hosting a webinar to provide an overview of the updated Stroke Clinical Guidelines and the current evidence base for therapy intensity.

‘More is better’ has been the adage of therapy provision for improving motor function after stroke for many years. The updated Stroke Clinical Guidelines increased the amount of recommended therapy time and made a distinction between time in therapy and time spent in active practice.

This webinar will explore the limitations to this evidence base and the rationale behind the current Guideline recommendations. It will also cover:

  • effective models for improving amount of therapy time, with a focus on circuit class therapy and seven day week therapy
  • the role of promoting physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour for recovery
  • long-term well-being and reduction of secondary stroke risk.
     

Participants will hear about recent research findings as well as the vision for the future of stroke therapy provision.
