CEU Course Description

Strokes are one of the most common and impactful neurological conditions that an individual can experience. As with many other conditions, occupational therapists can make a large difference in the world of stroke rehabilitation. One of the many ways that occupational therapists can help patients with a history of stroke is by helping change behaviors and habits to lessen the impact of modifiable risk factors. Therapists can also provide a range of therapeutic interventions that help people who have sustained strokes in rebuilding certain skills and regaining their independence. Occupational therapists work with a range of other healthcare professionals to provide multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation at all points in the continuum of care. Stroke rehabilitation may look different across practice settings. But there is a substantial amount of evidence that supports occupational therapy for individuals who require rehabilitation after a stroke.

CEU Course Objectives
