Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

le summarises the best available evidence-based recommendations for the interdisciplinary management of stroke survivors and caregivers from five sources: two in the US, one in Canada, and two in the UK. Unique characteristics of each guideline are described, followed by a list of common clinical recommendations found in most, if not all, of the guidelines. Despite the advances in stroke rehabilitation over the past 16 years, much research still needs to be done to improve the level of evidence in stroke rehabilitation.
