Stroke Rehabilitation Intensity eLearning Module & Quiz

To support the provision and collection of Stroke Rehabilitation Intensity, a Rehabilitation Intensity Learning Module & Quiz was developed in 2017 by the Ontario Regional Stroke Networks’ Rehabilitation Coordinator Group for inpatient rehabilitation programs that report to the National Rehabilitation Reporting System. This resource was later adapted to an eLearning module in 2020 by the University Health Network for local and provincial use.

The Rehabilitation Intensity quiz is located at the end of the module. Since your program may have established structures for education completion and quiz tracking, connect with your manager prior to starting the quiz.

Rehabilitation After Leaving the Hospital

 

Home Health Care

Home and Community Care involves nursing, rehabilitation and personal care to clients in a home setting. These services are designed to help individuals address everyday needs, continue with rehabilitation therapy, promote ongoing recovery as well as address risks that may be present within the home setting. Home care services often provide assistance with personal care, household chores and financial management.

Outpatient Stroke Rehabilitation Programs

Outpatient therapy in the sub-acute phase of stroke (4-8 weeks post stroke) is often prescribed following discharge from in-patient stroke rehabilitation units. Continuing therapy may include hospital-based “day” hospital programs or home-based rehabilitation.1

Private Stroke Therapy

An option for continuing therapy after stroke once leaving the hospital is to access private therapy services. If a person wants private therapy they can ask their healthcare team for further options.

About the Central South Regional Stroke Network

The Regional Stroke Program is accountable for providing leadership, development, implementation and integration of stroke care throughout the Central South Region and across all points in the spectrum of stroke care (health promotion, primary and secondary prevention, acute care, rehabilitation and community reintegration including long term care).

The Regional Stroke Centre has a Regional Stroke Steering Committee (RSSC) to oversee coordination. This committee meets twice per year.

Organized Stroke Care

Organized stroke care, an integrated evidence-based approach to managing stroke, has been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity and improve functional ability and quality of life for stroke patients. Organized stroke care includes the entire continuum of care, from prevention to community re-engagement. The objective of organized stroke care is to improve stroke outcomes by ensuring that the time to definitive diagnosis and treatment is minimized and that optimal treatment is offered.

The Ontario Stroke System is based on a three-tiered model consisting of Regional Stroke Centres (RSCs), District Stroke Centres (DSCs) and community hospitals.

Central South Ontario has one Regional Stroke Centre: Hamilton Health Sciences, Hamilton General Hospital and three District Stroke Centres: Brant Community Healthcare System, Brantford General Hospital, Grand River Hospital and Niagara Health System, Greater Niagara General Hospital.

Stroke Rehabilitation Intensity eLearning Module & Quiz

To support the provision and collection of Stroke Rehabilitation Intensity, a Rehabilitation Intensity Learning Module & Quiz was developed in 2017 by the Ontario Regional Stroke Networks’ Rehabilitation Coordinator Group for inpatient rehabilitation programs that report to the National Rehabilitation Reporting System. This resource was later adapted to an eLearning module in 2020 by the University Health Network for local and provincial use.

The Rehabilitation Intensity quiz is located at the end of the module. Since your program may have established structures for education completion and quiz tracking, connect with your manager prior to starting the quiz.

Hyperacute Treatment for Stroke

For the first time, acute stroke became a treatable disorder 20 years ago. Before the advent of thrombolysis (tPA) for acute ischemic stroke all we could offer someone who presented to hospital with a stroke was supportive care.

The injection of tPA(tissue plasminogen activator) into patients who present to hospital with acute stroke has improved the chances of a better recovery after stroke. tPA is a time sensitive treatment that can only be given within the first 4.5 hours after the stroke starts. tPA can only be given to patients with stroke due to a block in the circulation (most strokes), and not to stroke caused by bleeding into the brain. The treatment has to be used with caution and in the right patient as a side effect is bleeding. When used in the appropriate person tPA on average substantially improves the outcome in 1 in 6 people and with a bleeding complication risk of less than 1 in 30.

The most important factor that can lead to a good outcome is to act “FAST”. Know the warning signs of stroke: facial weakness, arm weakness, inability to speak normally. Act quickly, time is brain, call 911!

For some patients with an acute ischemic stroke (stroke due to blockage in the circulation), a new treatment has emerged. For those patients with a large clot in the circulation, sometimes, a catheter can be placed into the clot, and the clot can be removed, to restore the circulation. This treatment is also very time dependent and patients need to act “FAST”.

Post Stroke Checklist

This Post-Stroke Checklist has been developed to help healthcare professionals identify decline or changes in post-stroke function and cognition that may respond well to treatment and/or referral. It is a brief and easy-to-use tool, intended for completion with the patient and the help of a caregiver, if necessary. Post-Stroke Checklist administration provides a standardized approach for the identification of long-term problems in stroke survivors and facilitates appropriate referral for treatment.
